Resources are essential Education documents about mathematics education and those contributed to by members of the Make it count with Indigenous learners' community. These include foundation curriculum documents for the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics and the General Capabilities for Intercultural Understanding to develop challenging mathematics curriculum and strategies for all students.

Community members can develop dynamic and traditional resources for the Intercultural understanding learning continuum that can be directed into three interrelated organising elements:

  • Recognising culture and developing respect
  • Interacting and empathising with others and
  • Reflecting on intercultural experiences and taking responsibility.

The General Capabilities for the F-10 Curriculum frameworks and Diversity Framework documents should be used together in developing materials for teaching and learning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners.

The Forum can be used to provide or request resources.  If you have resources (learning activities, reviewed weblinks, curriculum materials, research etc) you can share related to this community's focus please contact the Connect with Maths team at

Members are encouraged to provide resources for sharing and these may be of the following file types:

  • video, preferably an mpg, wmv, quicktime
  • podcast
  • suitable graphic with description
  • photos (check permissions if students are involved)
  • word document
  • pdf
  • weblinks (could be Slideshare, YouTube, an online application such as a relevant blog and so on)
  • ppt
  • webinar (this would need to be translated into an mpg file for easy access by community members)
