Do you need more ideas on how to implement the new Mathematics syllabus for 2014?

Have you had a chance to look at the new NSW Mathematics Syllabus?


The delivery of ICT capabilities in the new syllabus can ensure the successful implementation of the new Mathematics syllabus in your school setting.


This project will give you the skills, ideas and confidence to create assessment tasks, teaching programs and effective feedback required for student success in Mathematics.


The new Mathematics Syllabus requires teachers to think more creatively and innovately to allow their students to do the same as well as work collaboratively, improve communication, and to allow for critical thinking. Within this project, teachers will cover all these areas and have an assessment task and start a teaching program that allows for this.

Who is this course for?

Department of Education and Communities Employees only.


This course will show you how to successfully integrate ICT into the new NSW Mathematics Syllabus.


7 - 10 Mathematics teachers only due to its implementation requirement in 2014.


A Mathematics teacher or Head Teacher who will take back to school the new assessment tasks and teaching programs to be implemented for 2013.


Use the device your school uses (T4L machine, tablet or DER laptop) to its full potential and start your students on the road to successful ICT practice.

What will you do during the two days?

  1. Identify what your needs are to ensure the successful implementation of the new Mathematics syllabus.
  2. Create at least one assessment task with an ICT capability focus.
  3. Model this assessment task for students.
  4. Start at least one teaching program for this assessment task integrating many ICT capabilities.
  5. Learn ICT skills appropriate for teaching Mathematics - skills for teachers and skills for students.
  6. Use the BOS program builder as an example of how to implement the new Mathematics Syllabus.
