The study of mathematics is an essential component in the study of many other disciplines. At Iona Presentation College, we hope that students will learn to appreciate both the beauty and power of mathematics.

We aim to educate our students to be able to competently tackle whatever tertiary courses they may choose to study. In addition, we aim to prepare our students to achieve a level of competency in mathematics that will enable them to make sensible decisions and predictions about their personal lives and to be able to manage their finances independently. We also aim to equip them with the tools needed to make informed decisions about the many social and scientific issues concerning the global community.

Students studying Mathematics at Iona have the added benefits of taking part in:

  • Maths Club – held every morning for mathematics help
  • the fun activities of Maths Week
  • extension classes which stimulate the most-able students
  • national competitions such as the Australian Mathematics Competition and the Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians.
