Leschenault uses Stepping Stones as a curriculum-aligned, comprehensive program covering Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry and Statistics and Probability.
Lessons across the school incorporate consistent features, including fluency exercises, explicit teaching, practical application of concepts and opportunities to independently demonstrate understanding. These lessons are primarily drawn from Stepping Stones, which features digital resources, games and activities designed to build or consolidate concepts, suggestions for supporting or enriching learning for differing student needs, worksheets and assessment options. Teachers complement the program with hands-on learning activities that allow students to explore concepts and apply them in real ways.
Using a whole-school program has benefits for students. For instance, students learn and use consistent vocabulary, building a rich understanding of mathematical terminology. Stepping Stones systematically introduces strategies and builds on them in successive years, so that students' understanding becomes increasingly complex.
