Maths – Why Not?


The Australian Government's Maths? Why Not? project has investigated the decline in student interest and enrolments in higher-level mathematics courses in the senior years of schooling and beyond. The project focused on perceptions and issues at the time of students’ formal decision making about senior school mathematics subjects at Year 10. The recommendations contained in the project's report are designed to assist schools, education authorities and universities respond to the issues identified by the research.
