The Mathematics faculty at Corowa High School take pride in ensuring that all students are engaged with their studies and reach their full potential. Class discussion and one-on-one learning ensures that all students are able to complete their work with confidence and make progress in their studies.

Our students have access to fantastic online learning tools including Mathletics and Maths-on-line and can access school assessments and relevant learning resources through Google Classroom. We monitor student progress through in-class testing and participation in the Australian Mathematics competition to find areas in which students are excelling and skills which we can improve upon.
