The Mathematics Curriculum at Patterson Lakes Primary School is based on the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). In preparation for the National Curriculum in 2013, Patterson Lakes Primary School has implemented a hybrid curriculum named AUS/VELS in 2012 to assist with the transition.
The Mathematics Professional Learning Team is made up of teaching representatives across the school from Prep to Year 6. Regular meetings are scheduled and minuted. The goals, objectives and vision of the Mathematics team are informed by the School Strategic Plan, Annual Implementation Plan and Mathematics Policy.
At Patterson Lakes Primary School, students have seven, fifty hour sessions of Mathematics each week.
