The Mathematics faculty at Castle Hill High School is staffed by a group of highly qualified and experienced specialist Mathematics teachers. We pride ourselves on providing the knowledge and care needed to allow our students to achieve their best possible results. We have Gifted and Talented classes in each of the junior years (7 to 10), and integrate literacy, technology and problem solving into all lessons where applicable. We embrace a BYOD policy on computers in years 8 to 12. All students are registered to use Mathletics online.

We participate successfully in the Commonwealth Bank Australian Mathematics Competition. We hold an annual Primary School Mathematics Extension Day, and have the QuckSmart Numeracy Program running for our low achieving students.

Years 7 & 8

Our junior (Stage 4) program is based on the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. All year 7 classes cover the strands: Working Mathematically, Number, Patterns & Algebra, Data, Measurement and Space & Geometry. Students apply strategies in selecting appropriate technology, communication and reasoning in all topics studied.

Years 9 & 10

Our middle school (Stage 5) program is based on the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum.  All levels are catered for, in graded classes, to allow students to achieve outcomes at stages 5.1 (Fundamental), 5.2 (Standard) and 5.3 (Advanced).  Mathematics builds on the strands started in stage four, as students prepare for the ROSA (Record of School Achievement) at the end of year 10, and aim towards senior work. Topics covered include: Rational Numbers, Consumer Arithmetic, Probability, Statistics, Graphs, Co-ordinate Geometry, Curve Sketching & Polynomials, Logarithms, Trigonometry, Circles, Surface Area & Volume.

Years 11 & 12

We offer all available courses in the senior school (Stage 6): Mathematics General, Mathematics (2 unit), Extension 1 (3 unit) and Extension 2 (4 unit) courses. Students choose their level of study depending on their Mathematical ability, and their aspirations for employment or tertiary study after the award of the Higher School Certificate.
