The program aims to turn around public perception of mathematics and will contribute to the health of the mathematics pipeline in Australia from school through university and out to industry and the workplace.
Choose Maths will work with students, parents and teachers over five years to turn around community attitude to participation in mathematics, especially for girls and young women.
A nation-wide awareness campaign to educate the public about the career pathways in mathematics.

The CHOOSEMATHS awards celebrate mathematics achievement, creativity and excellence in Australian schools.
A role-model network will be established to inspire school girls and young women to seek the opportunities mathematics offers
