Day, L. (2016). Accessing mathematical content through the proficiency strands. MAV (Mathematical Association of Victoria Annual Conference) 2016.
The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics differs from previous state versions of curricula by the inclusion of four Proficiency Strands alongside the three Content Strands. The Proficiency Strands are the power behind the curriculum as they shape the way in which the content should be accessed. Mathematically rich tasks that use a problem solving or inquiry approach allow students to develop deep understanding of mathematical concepts through reasoning and communication that will lead to greater fluency.
