“A National Strategy for Mathematical Sciences in Australia”

03 Mar 2009

The Strategy document, written by Hyam Rubinstein in consultation with the Australian Council of Heads of Mathematical Sciences is available at https://www.science.org.au/support/analysis/reports/national-strategy-mathematical-sciences-australia.

The link for the Strategy document written by Hyam Rubinstein in consultation with the Australian Council of Heads of Mathematical Sciences is: https://www.science.org.au/support/analysis/reports/national-strategy-mathematical-sciences-australia.

It has generated considerable interest especially from local media wanting to know about the local supply of teachers. Please do what you can to publicise the call for a national strategy and, if the media contact you, please give them all the help you can with local contacts.

Thanks

Science deans urge action to boost enrolments

09 Jul 2007

A new report has been released showing the number of chemistry and maths students at university has stayed the same since 1989, even though overall university enrolments doubled in the same.

The Australian Council of Deans of Science says a new teaching model needs to be devised to be more attractive to students. Find out more.
