# Maths Inside

An inspiring resource for learning numeracy

### Explore these classroom resources and videos which examine the mathematics involved in some of CSIRO’s leading edge developments in science and technology.

Numeracy Focus: All

This site is supported by the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT) and is managed by the University of Technology, Sydney.

It highlights the role of mathematics in society as motivation for students to engage more in mathematical activities with inspirational videos and classroom resources that ‘unpack’ the mathematics involved in some of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’s (CSIRO) leading edge developments in Science and technology.

Each set of classroom materials has a video which explains the work of the scientist(s)and the mathematics that they use, plus a suite of activities which further explore the mathematical ideas.

<>Activities make explicit the numeracy in highly contemporary cross-curricula contexts, especially Science (e.g. climate change), Health (e.g. nutrition), Economics (e.g. profit) and Geography (e.g. 3D mapping).

Supporting documents specify the year levels, number strands and proficiencies the activity supports, comprehensive teacher notes and questions for students to motivate inquiry.
