reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry holds Outreach Officers’ orientation program

reSolve Outreach Officers from each state and territory converged on the Academy in June to meet with other reSolve personnel and to be formally introduced to the reSolve project. Officers provided feedback on a first draft of the Professional Learning Module, and visited Lyneham High School and Turner Primary School to watch how lessons were presented.

Outreach Officers will liaise with schools and teachers involved in trialling lesson sequences developed by the reSolve writing team, and offer them feedback. Outreach Officers will also liaise with contacts from the government, Catholic and independent sectors as part of this work. ‘Talent spotting’ for future reSolve ‘champions’ is also part of their role, in readiness for future phases of the project.

People interested in keeping up to date with reSolve can subscribe to the newsletter. Enquiries can be directed to Matt Skoss, Manager Maths by Inquiry (Engagement) on 0418 624 631 or
