Make it Count Resources

The resources developed by Make It Count will help schools working at the intersection of Indigenous education and mathematics education. Resources include tools for collecting data, units of learning designed by our creative and innovative educators, and professional reading.

  • Units of Learning - The units of learning have been designed by teachers and/or Aboriginal educators (in schools with Aboriginal education officers). They give insights into creative and innovative ways of teaching mathematics that engages Indigenous - and non-Indigenous - learners.

  • Tools - The Make it Count project developed and used a range of resources to help various aspects of the work in the schools and clusters. These became known as 'tools'. Several were found to be very useful and are available for you to use.
  • Professional Reading - A list of resources, papers and articles supporting the work of Make It Count.

  • Significant Episodes - A Significant Episode is an event, or a small series of linked events, that has impacted on educators professionally and has helped develop or change the way they teach and think about teaching. These Significant Episodes provided rich data for the Make It Count Cluster Findings.

  • Inspiring Stoires- These stories – from the clusters, from educators, Aboriginal students, leaders and parents – tell their journeys, challenges, successes and will inspire educators. They are linked to the Cluster Findings and are also downloadable (PDF). Use these stories to promote discussions with your colleagues and in your learning communities. What can you learn from these people's experiences? Use these stories to help you think about your own experiences in the classroom and inform your teaching?


Make It Count

Make It Count 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.
