Maths in the Kimberley: Reforming mathematics education in remote indigenous communities
The Maths in the Kimberley project was funded through the Australian Research Council Linkage Grant scheme with the Association of Independent schools of Western Australia (AISWA) as the industry partner. The grant was jointly held between Griffith University, Brisbane and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
The aim of the Maths in the Kimberley project was to address the issue of underperformance of remote Indigenous students in mathematics through using a framework of high demand mathematics along with an innovative pedagogical model.
A collection of papers has been published as a resource for the industry partner, teachers, schools and communities to provide them up to date information on the project’s progress, as well as a resource for new teachers and staff to the schools involved.
