reSolve: Maths by Inquiry is a national project that provides Australian schools with resources to help students learn mathematics in an innovative and engaging way. It is led by a team of expert teachers and academics from around the country.

The reSolve vision:

At the centre of reSolve is the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry Protocol. This sets out a vision for teaching and learning mathematics and underpins all aspects of the project. The protocol is organised around three focal points:



The Nuts and Bolts:

reSolve provides principals, teachers, schools and students with resources for professional learning and classroom teaching. It is based on relevant real-world examples to help students deal with complex situations using a variety of mathematical methods.
Its professional resources promote individual teacher learning and whole-school change, plus highlight all aspects of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry Protocol. The resources support the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
Its classroom resources exemplify the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry Protocol. These support the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics and include learning experiences for every year level from Foundation to Year 10, with a particular focus on understanding, reasoning and problem solving. They provide examples of how mathematics is used in everyday life and mathematical investigations and proof, while some capitalise on emerging technologies and mathematically able software. The classroom resources range from single lessons to
substantial units of work.

Who’s behind reSolve:

reSolve is a key programme under the Australian Government’s Restoring the focus on STEM in schools initiative. It is managed by the Australian Academy of Science in collaboration with the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers.


The programme runs from November 2015 to June 2018,
with resources becoming available from November 2016.
