"Mathematics is the work of the human mind, which is destined rather to study than to know, to seek the truth rather than to find it." - Évariste Galois


The aim of the Mathematics faculty at Ingleburn High School is to enable students to become confident users of mathematics, learning and applying the language of mathematics to communicate efficiently and effectively. They will develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of mathematical concepts and a fluency with mathematical processes that helps them to interpret and solve problems. Students make connections within Mathematics and connect Mathematical concepts with the world around them. They will learn to understand and appreciate how Mathematics is a relevant part of their lives.

In NSW, Mathematics is a mandatory subject for all students from K-10 and will also be mandatory for Years 11-12 from 2026. Students in Years 7-10 follow the Mathematics syllabus and students in Years 11-12 follow separate syllabi depending on which course they choose to pursue.

For all years, our teaching programmes are equipped with a variety of teaching and learning activities to reflect the needs of changing modern world. Students will be participating in collaborative problem-solving activities, familiarising themselves with interactive technologies such as Desmos and Geogebra, learning how to utilise spreadsheets and practicing and developing their numeracy skills.


  • To foster a safe, positive and engaging learning environment with a focus on student improvement and growth
  • To develop relevant and adaptable mathematical skills in the areas of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability in order to prepare students for their future.
  • To create connections between Mathematics and other disciplines such as Science, TAS and Engineering (STEM) to explore modern day issues and provide solutions.
  • To cater to students of all backgrounds and all ability levels and to provide accessible and high quality teaching and learning experiences every lesson.

 Courses Offered

Stage 4: (Year 7 & 8)

In Years 7 and 8, students attend 7 Mathematics classes and 1 Numeracy class a fortnight. The basic components of numeracy, algebra, geometry, measurement, statistics and probability are the foundations of mathematical study in Years 7 and 8.

Stage 5: (Year 9 & 10)

In Years 9 and 10, students attend 7 Mathematics classes a fortnight. Mathematics classes follow a Core-Path structure where students demonstrate achievement of all the Core and as many of the Path outcomes as possible. Mathematics teachers will have the option of engaging with specific topics in the Path to meet the needs of their students.

Stage 6: (Year 11 & 12)

In Years 11 and 12, students have the opportunity to select a Mathematics course suited to their ability and interest. Students and parents should consult their Mathematics teachers in order to determine which course will best suit them.

Year 11:

    •    Numeracy CEC (can be studied in conjunction with another Mathematics course)

    •    Mathematics Standard

    •    Mathematics Advanced

        Mathematics Extension

Year 12:

    •    Numeracy CEC

    •    Mathematics Standard 1

    •    Mathematics Standard 2

    •    Mathematics Advanced

    •    Mathematics Extension 1

    •    Mathematics Extension 2


  • Students are required to bring a NESA approved calculator to all Mathematics lessons. This link lists all the models approved for use in NSW schools – the most popular of which is the CASIO fx-82AU PLUS II
  • Ingleburn High School has the privilege of collaborating with the University of New England to implement the QuickSmart program at our school. The QuickSmart Numeracy intervention program focuses on understanding and recall of basic number facts, performance of elementary calculations, acquisition of appropriate mathematics language, and problem-solving skills. Selected students in Year 7 will attend 3 30-minute sessions a week with a qualified QuickSmart instructor and develop their conceptual understanding of basic numeracy skills.
