About the Hub
The Mathematics Hub supports Australian teachers to teach mathematics and numeracy in engaging and informative ways that will improve mathematics and numeracy outcomes for their students. The Hub provides a range of resources from a number of different teaching pedagogies. In the early years (Foundation-Year 2) there is a focus on mastery of mathematics foundation skills through explicit teaching, with a greater breadth of resources across all pedagogies to support the middle and later years of schooling. It also provides materials for parents who wish to support their child’s developing mathematics skills.
The Hub includes:
- Resources for teachers and school leaders designed to help them encourage students to see the importance and relevance of mathematics and numeracy to their everyday lives and future career opportunities.
- Free, online, nationally available mathematics professional learning opportunities.
- The Number Check, a quick and easy way for teachers to gauge the numeracy knowledge of Year 1 students.
- The Planning tool, a tool supporting teachers from Foundation–Year 10 to plan mathematics lessons.
Maths in Schools: Teaching and Learning Resources to Support Mathematics is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and managed by Education Services Australia.
