Mathematics

​Mathematics incorporates the skills of numeracy, rote learning of procedures, problem solving and critical thinking; research shows that students who learn mathematics achieve better overall results in education. This is why in Queensland Mathematics is a compulsory subject for all students from year 7 to year 12

Year 7 – 9

At Dalby State High School the Maths team use the Australian Curriculum along with the text resource of “Essential Mathematics for the Australian Curriculum” and digital resources including IXL Maths to present our Mathematics program. In years 7 to 9 classes are not streamed, instead our teachers cater for the individual needs of students within mixed ability classes.

Year 10

In year 10 we offer three different Mathematics subjects, each designed for the different future pathways available to our students. “Short Course in Numeracy” is designed for students who work hard but still struggle with mathematical concepts, it teaches real world applications of maths and recognises them as numerate citizens. “Year 10 Core Maths” follows on from our year 7 to 9 program, it combines real world and abstract mathematics and is assessed by assignments and exams. This subject leads into “Mathematics A” in senior. Finally “Year 10 Extension Maths” challenges our students who enjoy or are good at Mathematics, it combines complex mathematical reasoning and prepares our students to go on to study “Mathematics B” and “Mathematics C” in Senior.

Senior Subjects

At Dalby State High School we offer face to face classes for all the senior Mathematics subjects; Prevocational Maths, Mathematics A, Mathematics B and Mathematics C. More information can be found on each of these subjects individually in the fact sheets provided in “related links”.

Tutoring

The Mathematics department run a regular maths tutoring session in the support space on Tuesday mornings from 8 am until 9 am. Individual teachers also run tutorials at lunchtimes during the week. Contact individual teachers for more information.
