The Maths@Saints program originated in 2006 following a generous donation from Old Scholar, Alastair Wood who wished the gift be used to promote mathematics within St Peter’s College and the activities of the School in the wider community. The objectives of the Maths@Saints program are:
- To enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics at St Peter’s College.
- To further develop the St Peter’s College Mathematics Department as a leader in mathematics education through innovation and best practice.
- To provide opportunities for students to engage in a range of exciting learning opportunities in addition to the standard curriculum.
- To provide opportunities for professional development of mathematics teachers.
- To provide opportunities for critical reflection on current practice and developments in mathematics education.
- To extend the range of resources available to support student learning in mathematics.
The Maths@Saints program complements the strong curriculum offering provided by the School. Mathematics at St Peter’s College is a core subject and is compulsory to Year 11, with the majority of students opting to continue their studies into Year 12.
All students are exposed to enrichment activities commensurate with their interests and abilities as part of our broad curricula offering. Recent examples of these opportunities include students competing in the ASX Sharemarket Game, visits from the Commonwealth Bank StartSmart team, Engineers Without Borders and lectures concerning fractal geometry.
