The study of mathematics is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10. 

By studying mathematics, students learn to work mathematically – developing fluency, understanding, problem-solving, reasoning and communication skills.

The syllabus consists of the following strands:

  • number and algebra
  • measurement and geometry
  • statistics and probability.

In Year 11 and 12, the study of mathematics is optional. Courses offered include:

  • Mathematics Extension 2 (Year 12 only)
  • Mathematics Extension 1
  • Mathematics Advanced
  • Mathematics Standard 2
  • Mathematics Standard 1 (Optional HSC examination)
  • Mathematics Life Skills.

The Mathematics Faculty at Windsor High School is dedicated in providing your child with every opportunity to achieve a sound mathematical education. In line with best practice, we are increasingly using computer based resources to achieve this objective. For most students, Mathematics is a challenging subject that requires them to pay attention in class, take notes for later revision and  practise by completing both their classwork and homework.

Our students have the opportunity to participate in a number of events, such as, the ICAS Competition, Australian Mathematics Competition, Problem Solving Competitions and WSU Information Technology Days.  We also run a Homework Clinic on Monday afternoons where students can receive some individual assistance from our Mathematic teachers.
