Welcome to IMPACT: Inquiry Maths Pedagogy in Action
This website aims to share ideas, resources, tips and personal experiences about inquiry pedagogy for teaching mathematics in the classroom. We invite all teachers and learners who are researchers and are interested in this approach, to build and become part of this inquiry culture.
Free access to Inquiry Units
A focus on evidence
Interested in assessment?
Available to Members now, find out about a NEW inquiry for Year 6 exploring positive and negative integers. Formative and summative assessment is also available - aligned with the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. Also includes Our marking Guide for summative assessment.
Greater alignment with the Australian Curriculum
How can we solve messy problems in the mathematics classroom? Last year, Associate Professor Katie Makar presented how mathematical inquiry improves pedagogy over time at the STEM Teacher Symposium held in Brisbane. She described letting students wrestle with problems, just like the ones real professionals run into.
