About the Maths Inside Project (2015-2018).

This project was funded for 1.9 million dollars by the Australian Maths and Science Partnership Program (Federal Government). Dr Coupland was co-leader with Associate Professor Anne Prescott at UTS. The collaborative project with CSIRO and AAMT produced curriculum materials highlighting the role of mathematics in science. The materials, videos of scientists with related classroom activities, are freely available and used in many Australian schools. An accompanying research project indicated that Maths Inside was successful in raising student interest in studying mathematics, and improving teacher awareness of the importance of mathematics in addressing current real-world issues.
