This learning event is right for you if you are a Head of Mathematics Faculty/Department, a Director of Teaching and Learning or Pedagogy Leader.



To support the conceptual understandings needed in the revised and refined Australian Curriculum this full day session will spotlight the use of the Achievements Standards in alignment to, and in support of, the Content Descriptors.

The workshop will take a high-level cognitive approach drawing upon several mapping tools that can be used within your school context to start the dialogue of assessment and moderation of the Australian Curriculum. This is an opportunity to take a deeper dive into Mathematics, unpacking the rationale and how this subject area is linked to the General Capabilities.

We will be further supported in our thinking and exploration of the Australian Curriculum by the Mathematics Leader from ACARA. The final part of the day is protected time to unpack your thinking in how you will take this back to your school to ensure a vertical and horizontal curriculum is achieved from Foundation to Year 10.

This learning event supports creating best practice toward meeting the following VRQA standard(s):

  • Curriculum and Student Learning – Curriculum framework                                                               
  • Curriculum and Student Learning – Student learning outcomes
  • The minimum standards for schools offering a senior secondary course – Student learning outcomes
  • The minimum standards for schools offering a senior secondary course – Teaching and learning                        


Key takeaways               

  • strategies to support teachers in teaching and assessing supporting Mathematics within the Australian Curriculum
  • ways support teachers to align their teaching and assessment practices
  • development of a starting point and access to mapping tools 
  • ways to navigate the revised Australian Curriculum Website.
