These kits capture years of work by many teachers who have been stimulated and challenged to search out the features of better maths teaching and learning. Find out more detail in the Resources link on the left.
This year we have programmed a range of Tasks/Maths 300 lessons across Years 7-10 so the staff are becoming more familiar. We are also getting staff to present one task/lesson each at faculty meetings through the year so that each person in the faculty becomes familiar with at least 10-15 new activities. The level of enthusiasm amongst staff and students is encouraging and we are appreciative of all of the work you have put into the Maths With Attitude kits - they are fantastic!!Of course the hard work is being done by Michael and his team and it's great to hear of a staff working together so enthusiastically and seeing the results of their efforts. However, there is a big background thank you in Michael's note to all the teachers in all the schools who, over many years, have been willing to enter the debate about what makes maths teaching better; and willing to share the best of what they have done in a way that we have been able to collect and structure.
Thanks once again for all of your hard work - it is making maths relevant and meaningful to lots of students!!
You are also encouraged to become engaged in this debate through the tasks and investigative lessons built on them. It only takes a paragraph like Michael's to share your efforts more widely.
In the Maths on the Move link on the left there are already opportunities for teachers in Victoria, South Australia and Far North Queensland. Preliminary details for programs in Northern Territory are also available.
The intention of the workshop will be to tell stories from Indigenous classrooms and stories about Indigenous students to uplift, resource and encourage participants who are working with Indigenous students.
WE NEED MORE OF YOUR STORIES.
If you have been involved in Indigenous learning using the Task Centre materials and related resources and have been excited about the developments you have seen in your students, please send text, photos, scans etc. with permission for us to use the information. Anything from a paragraph to an encyclopedia would be welcome.
USA readers take note. We know that our Indigenous material has been used in some of your schools too, so let's hear some of your stories.

Andy Martin has organised a successful eBuddy network before and wants to do so again. PLEASE HELP. There are many benefits which accrue apart from young mathematicians talking with each other.
