This teacher works closely with other staff to link mathematics learning to students’ experiences. He encourages a collaborative, inquiry-based approach to teaching mathematics, modelling the use of questioning to encourage the use of problem solving with other staff and students. An activity that allows for mathematical investigation, is facilitated by a parent who has an engineering background. The parent visits the school to teach students how to design and construct see-saws using Lego.

Opportunities are provided for students to pursue personal learning passions and negotiate the curriculum.
