reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry

‘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. To access, please visit

reSolve 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 will engage with and draw from the work of leading teachers, principals and academics from around the country. The project team will work closely with educational jurisdictions, teachers’ associations, teacher educators and principals to ensure that the materials and inquiry approach become a central aspect of every Australian mathematics classroom.

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.

Background information

As part of the preparation for the reSolve program, the Academy conducted a desktop review of teaching approaches and learning resources for mathematics school education. The review recommended focusing on solving real-world problems mathematically, developing resources to promote reasoning and problem solving, and creating resources to build mathematics teachers’ knowledge of mathematics and its teaching.
