Math Active Schools

The Maths Active School programme allows schools to demonstrate that the school is actively extending their students and teachers beyond the normal mathematics classroom.

MAWA has initiated a program for each school year which will enable schools to demonstrate that they are “Maths Active Schools” – schools which actively extend students and teachers beyond the normal mathematics classroom. We believe that such schools deserve more recognition at a time when the school culture has become more competitive and parents are looking to “Myschool” and other metrics for comparing schools. The scheme is recognised by the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and is already in operation in two other states.

Schools can apply to be assessed for one of three “levels” – Bronze, Silver and Gold. These are based on criteria which MAWA has published and distributed to all Western Australian schools. The application process is free of charge – all a school needs to do is send in evidence that they have met the criteria during the previous school year and, if they have, MAWA will issue a certificate to the school which it can display on noticeboards, and also given an official copy of the Maths Active Logo relevant to the year; which the school can display on its website. We will also advertise that the school is a Maths Active School on our own website.

Examples of activities which would contribute to a school’s standing include:

  • Participation in student activities and competitions.
  • Attending and/or presenting at conferences or conventions.
  • Anything which shows initiative – for example, hosting and running a regional maths event or helping to judge or mentor at activity events.
  • Writing articles about mathematics or mathematics education in academic journals or magazines.
  • Individual memberships of MAWA for teachers at the school.
