In Year 8 Mathematics we aim to consolidate and extend student understanding of Year 7 Mathematics and prepare them for the demands of Year 9 Mathematics.

Currently the Cambridge Essential Mathematics text book is our primary resource, however, these may be supplemented by a variety of worksheets and Interactive media. PowerPoint presentations or “Hotmaths” may be used to assist visual learners.

Students who have difficulty with mathematics may be eligible for the Modified Mathematics class which is generally smaller in size and works at a pace that is better suited to students who struggle with mathematical concepts.

Higher ability students may be eligible for the Extension Mathematics class.

Maths Help is organised at times to suit both the student and teacher concerned when required.
