We are building a proud tradition of engagement, success and excellence in Mathematics at MGSC. Learning Mathematics assists our students to develop numeracy skills suited to everyday activities and enables them to complete Mathematics subjects at VCE and higher education levels, opening the door to numeracy being an important part of their lives for years to come.
Our dynamic Year 7 to 10 Mathematics courses provide strong foundations in basic numeracy and mathematical skills, as well as help students to develop strategies to think mathematically and develop their problem solving skills.
