5. Ambassadors and mathematics perceptions
Deliver communications initiatives – including a NSW mathematics ambassador network and a digital resource – to improve perceptions of and engagement with mathematics among students, parents and carers, and teachers.
About this initiative
What we are doing
A collection of communications initiatives will promote the relevance and lifelong benefits of mathematics for students. A key aim is to help parents and carers to support their children’s mathematics education. A new digital experience for parents and carers will feature online resources for children from Kindergarten to Year 10. The department is also identifying mathematics ambassadors across a range of professions who will highlight the uses of mathematics for everyone, in everyday life and work.
What this will achieve
Students will experience increased engagement with mathematics and a deepened understanding of its relevance in school and beyond as a problem-solving skill for life.
