Competition Skill Building


Investigating with Mathematics aims to promote interest in mathematics and foster positive attitudes amongst students, teachers and parents. The purpose of the investigation is to explore 'real-life' situations and problems to engage students and teachers in mathematics. It involves students formulating their own questions from a given situation. Investigating with Mathematics tasks meet Working Mathematically syllabus outcomes as well as outcomes in the strands in which the investigation takes place.

All students from Kindergarten to Year 12 in NSW are eligible to enter. There are three entry categories: individual, small group (no more than 5) and whole class. A maximum of 3 investigation entries per category per school may be submitted (i.e. a school may submit a maximum of 3 individual, 3 group and 3 class entries in any year group).
