Parallel to the revision of the Australian Curriculum, new content elaborations have been developed by ACARA in collaboration with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance. These elaborations provide examples of how the teaching and learning of the content of Mathematics can be supported using contexts drawn from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross-curriculum priority.
Engaging in this project with Aboriginal partners will provide participating schools with increased knowledge and understanding about the new Mathematics content elaborations and their interface with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross-curriculum priority and the Mathematics curriculum. Through professional learning, school-based coaching sessions and action inquiry, participating leaders and teachers will engage with the elaborations and explore their potential for enriching Mathematics teaching and learning whilst providing a more culturally responsive curriculum experience for students (and teachers). This project will support the AITSL ‘Building Indigenous Cultural Competency in the Australian Teaching Workforce’ project.
Participating schools will be encouraged to engage with local Aboriginal partners.
