Why?

At Chalkwall we believe that the most important grades are Years 7 & 8! Our reason is simple. Years 7 & 8 set the foundation for the course of the entire HSC. How?

Based on their performance in these years, students starting Year 9 will be split into three levels as part of the NSW curriculum; Standard, Intermediate and Advanced. The environment of an Advanced class compared to a Standard and even Intermediate class will definitely contrast in terms of work ethic, focus and motivation to say the least. Ultimately these class environments will have a long lasting impact on the academic and working culture of a student going into Year 11 & 12.

This is why our Maths classes at Chalkwall are focused on strengthening students’ basic skills and delving into core topics that will inevitably have an effect on their class level placements in Years 9 & 10 and ultimately the HSC.

How the program works?

We have created a program that focuses on strengthening basic skills while also including topics and exercises that develop problem solving skills and working mathematically.

Weekly classes are aimed at making students sharper mathematically without depending on the calculator as often. Lessons are also thought provoking to ensure students are not solely relying on memorising techniques.

Our weekly homework tasks, revision sets, regular topic exams and major Half Yearly and Yearly exams also help ensure that students remain consistent and on task.

Quality Education

Our students are not the only ones we assess to measure growth. We believe that only great teachers can build great students. This is why we ensure that all our Educators have exceptional content knowledge, great delivery techniques and a positive attitude. In addition, our regular assessment of the performance of our teachers help us maintain our top quality educational programs.

Our Mathematics Educators

Our Maths Educators are sharp and very well versed in mathematical content areas. Working together, our instructors have developed strategies on how to best teach students content as well as how to help keep them motivated and consistent.

Students Receive

Homework

Homework is distributed weekly ensuring students practice the skills learnt in class. It is collected and marked on a weekly basis then returned to the student. This enables teachers to assess their students’ level of understanding and focus on weaknesses.

Assessments

Informal assessments are carried out during class where teachers observe students’ level of progress through class work and give written and verbal feedback. Students are also tested at the end of each topic.

Students are given two formal exams at the end of Term 1 and Term 3 and feedback is provided to parents/guardians. These results are used to determine areas of need and become a focal point for further learning.

Resources

Students are provided with a class workbook each term that covers all the content of the term. Students also receive revision booklets and past exam packages.

Year 7 students are provided with NAPLAN practice questions in Term 1 in preparation for NAPLAN.

Year 8 students are also provided with NAPLAN practice questions in Term 4 in preparation for Year 9 NAPLAN.

Tracking

Student attendance, homework completion and understanding of content taught is recorded on a weekly basis for tracking purposes.
