reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry is a national program that provides Australian schools in Foundation to Year 10 with resources to help students learn mathematics in an innovative and engaging way. Resources are available free to all Australian students and teachers. The program is managed by the Australian Academy of Science in collaboration with the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

reSolve is now recruiting teachers and others to become Champions for the approach, who can support change in the teaching of mathematics into the future. Find out more

At the centre of reSolve is the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry Protocol. This sets out a vision for teaching and learning mathematics and underpins all aspects of the project. The protocol is organised around three focal points:

  • reSolve mathematics is purposeful
  • reSolve tasks are challenging yet accessible
  • reSolve classrooms have a knowledge-building culture.

Read the reSolve newsletter to keep in touch with the program, and sign up to receive the newsletter on a regular basis (one per school term).
