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.
