Australian Maths Trust

While most organisations set out to solve problems, the Australian Maths Trust (AMT) focuses all their attention on creating them. Why? Well, to put it simply, they do it because the future depends on it.

Their vision is to develop a nation of creative problem solvers, and the Trust believes that maths is the most effective way to get students there. Maths isn’t just about times tables and formulae. It’s about the process of finding creative solutions to problems. Maths develops resilience, persistence, confidence, and creative thinking in students.

AMT is passionate about empowering students to become better problem solvers in school, so they can be creative solution finders in the future.
