Who We Are
The central teaching and learning approach of BushMaths is based on getting participants to understand the notation and terminology of mathematics concepts they work with at school and to equip participants with the necessary understanding and thinking skills to liberate them from needing to memorise pages of rules and laws. While there are a number of mathematical conventions that we need to know, mastering the meaning of these conventions, terminology and notation builds a stronger foundation than memorising rules. This in turn often builds one’s confidence, enjoyment of and performance in mathematics. Being able to offer this to participants in a bush context can also lead to a more positive attitude towards the subject and conservation.
