Oxford Big Ideas Mathematics is designed to develop students’ knowledge, concepts, skills and processes so they can make meaningful connections with mathematical concepts and the world around them. The program is:
  • Developed as a whole-school program and supports the development of conceptual understandings as students move along a learning continuum, from Foundation to Year 6.
  • Structured to ensure that connections to the big ideas of mathematics are not left to chance.
  • Designed to give students opportunities to be self-motivated, confident learners through inquiry and active participation in the experiences presented.


Oxford Big Ideas Mathematics aligns explicitly with the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. The program:

  • Is organised into the three Australian Curriculum: Mathematics content strands: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability, and addresses all sub-strands.
  • Focuses on the four proficiency strands: Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning.
  • Includes the use of knowledge and skills learned in other areas, particularly in English, Science and History.
  • Provides assessment tasks – Topic tests – that mirror the experiences students have with national testing.
