Restoring the focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics—Mathematics by Inquiry

The Mathematics by Inquiry initiative is aimed at developing innovative teaching and learning resources to support problem-solving and reasoning in mathematics. As a first step, the department has commissioned two desktop reviews by the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and the Australian Academy of Science.

A roundtable attended by eminent mathematics education experts and opened by the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, Minister for Education and Training, was held in Adelaide on 7 May 2015. Attendees considered the two reports and made recommendations for how the Mathematics by Inquiry initiative should proceed.
