12 December 2017, EducationHQ Australia, AMSI Director Professor Geoff Prince. Australia’s growing mathematical deficit poses a real and deepening social and economic risk.

In a powerful opinion piece, Professor Prince explores the real cost of Australia’s mathematical incompetency and the need for a national agenda to achieve an equitable maths future for all Australians.
