Years F to 6 Mathematical Inquiry into Authentic Problems

Ten inquiry units based in authentic real world situations and an accompanying teacher’s guide. The major aim is for students to learn to use mathematics to help make sensible decisions in response to the ill-structured and open-ended questions that are encountered in life.  These are questions such as:

  • What do we need for a tea party?  (Foundation)
  • What fraction of a bottle needs to be filled with water to be the best for bottle flipping? (Year 3)
  • Who has the best reaction time?  (Year 5)
