2017 CHOOSEMATHS Award Winners

AMSI

Now in their second year, the 2017 CHOOSEMATHS Awards celebrate mathematical achievement, creativity and excellence in Australian schools.

The teacher awards recognise innovative and creative mentors who have engaged and inspired a new generation of mathematical leaders in and beyond the classroom.

Generating excitement within maths classrooms across the country, the student awards are themed to inspire discussion and exploration of real world applications of maths. Bringing these ideas to life on film allows students to reimagine maths concepts and take maths learning beyond the classroom in creative and imaginative ways.

AMSI is pleased to announce the 2017 CHOOSEMATHS Award winners.
