At GIPS, we intend to focus our attention on developing sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding across all year levels with a strong focus on mathematical conceptual understandings targeted at every child’s point of need.

Under the structure of the Victorian Curriculum, across all year levels GIPS follows the Big Ideas, a student-centred approach focused on mathematical concepts that link to numerous mathematical understandings. The Big Ideas provide a framework for our students to build understanding by connecting related ideas and support development of the understanding in number from early to advanced concepts. Our curriculum allows students to deeply build number sense and it enriches student mathematical thinking.

“One of the main aims of school mathematics is to create mental objects in the mind’s eye of children which can be manipulated flexibly with understanding and confidence.” - Professor Dianne Siemon, RMIT University
