Maths Explorations

Stretch your students’ mathematical imaginations to their limits as they solve challenging real-world and mathematical problems that extend concepts from the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics.

The Maths Explorations series provides teachers with the perfect resource to extend students’ learning with the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. Each exploration in the series is tailored to engage students in the mathematics content, as well as promote the use of practical skills. Topics explored in the Maths Explorations series include:

  • Ratios, Proportions and Similarity
  • Measurement and Polygons
  • Fractions
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Numbers and Operations
  • Factors and Multiples

Each activity comes with extensive teacher support including student handouts, discussion guides, detailed solutions and suggestions for extending the investigations. While these activities have not been designed to correlate directly with Australian Curriculum: Mathematics content descriptions, the knowledge and skills that students develop as they learn curriculum content form the basis of their understanding in approaching the explorations here.

The activities in the Maths Explorations series are the ideal extension for gifted students using the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, and will ensure that advanced learners remain engaged with their work in the classroom while practising essential skills.
