Numeracy

FAMPA

In numeracy students explore number, space, measurement, chance and data.


At Newport Lakes numeracy is taught in an engaging and interactive way. Students have the opportunity to use concrete materials, become involved in maths games and solve open ended questions. Students complete problems catered for their individual abilities. Students are challenged to explain the way they have solved the question and how they got to a certain answer.


FAMPA is a family maths night held once a year. FAMPA helps to create a working relationship between parents and children. It also improves children’s approach to the application of logic, visualisation and problem solving skills. Most of all it showcases how much fun maths can be.
