This video was put together through the AAMT Make it count project by Kargun Fogarty. It shows how mathematics identity and cultural identity can work together in learning.
Make It Count (AAMT resource) is for educators working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners in mathematics education. It is a teaching and learning resource, and a professional learning tool.
Make It Count is about a way of thinking – and a way of doing.
It offers pathways, possibilities and ideas for schools and professional learning communities to make their own inroads and innovations into improving mathematics and numeracy learning outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners.
ATSIMA is supporting the [xe] project, a partnership between the University of South Australia and the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers through the Australian Maths and Science Partnerships Program (AMSPP).
The three-year national project aims to foster mathematics excellence and equity in schooling and tertiary education choices for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The project will support classroom practice in maths, and build upon Indigenous student attainment at school into successful tertiary study pathways.
