The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

In Year 11 and 12, the study of mathematics is optional. Courses offered include:

  • Mathematics Extension 2 (Year 12 only)
  • Mathematics Extension 1
  • Mathematics Advanced
  • Mathematics Standard 2
  • Mathematics Standard 1 (Optional HSC examination)
  • Mathematics Life Skills.

Mathematics is taught to all students at Miller IEC. Upon enrolment, students are given an initial assessment task in mathematics which assesses their literacy, numeracy and mathematics ability. Based on the results of this initial assessment students are then placed into appropriate classes.

Junior maths classes cater for Year 7 and 8 students. Intermediate and senior classes cater for Yearr 9, 10, 11 & 12 students.

There are also two reception classes which cater for students needing support with the language of mathematics.

Teachers focus on the language of mathematics as well as core topics as prescribed by the mainstream syllabus. This helps students in their transition to high school upon exiting the IEC.

Teachers monitor students' performances and end-of-term tests are conducted to place students at the right level. Trained and qualified teachers teach mathematics at Miller IEC.
