Thought-provoking Maths

Have you seen the latest addition to Scootle?

We’ve taken a maths by inquiry approach to create 21 Thought-provoking maths learning sequences just for you!

These learning sequences cover a variety of maths topics for F–10 students, and use a combination of hands-on learning tasks and digital resources from Scootle and beyond.

Each Thought-provoking maths learning sequence includes:

  • a provocation to stimulate student thinking around a specific concept
  • step-by-step instructions with resource suggestions
  • links to digital resources, video clips, and hands-on activities that provide students with skill practise or allow them to experiment, investigate or problem-solve
  • ideas or a specific task to enable students to represent their learning
  • links to the Australian Curriculum and the Mathematics proficiencies.

Designed by maths educators, they are visually appealing, and easy to follow and implement.
