Equity outcomes for Indigenous students are dcreasing. This project seeks to implement high quality high demanding mathematics in a remote Indigenous community in the Kimberley. The project recognises that learning mathematics demands a cultural approach for students whose culture is not that of school mathematics. Using a design research approach the project explores quality learning environments for students, teachers and Aboriginal Education Workers. The project aims to develop sustainable practices in hard-to-staff regions that support high quality mathematics learning. The project will provide guidelines for development of rogorous and culturally-appropriate practices in mathematics with application across all equity contexts.
