A not-for-profit membership institute, AMSI is the central champion for Australia’s mathematical sciences. We work closely with schools, universities, industry, philanthropy, government and the community to help skill Australia to thrive in a changing world. Our programs drive initiatives to strengthen mathematics education, higher education, research and industry innovation.
Contact our media team to access one of our expert spokespeople. We can provide data, analysis and comment on mathematics education, careers, higher education, research and innovation.
AMSI’s Schools program delivers valuable resources and training for Australian mathematics teachers. Face-to-face professional development is delivered through workshops, in-class support, modelled lessons, digital and print resources and program development support – all in line with the Australian curriculum and to meet the needs of individual schools.
The Schools program is staffed by experienced teachers who have been closely involved in writing the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. Along with our digital and print resources we also produced maths: make your career count; a popular series of posters and videos that showcase how mathematics enriches a variety of careers.
AMSI Research delivers on our mission to support mathematical sciences research and its applications including cross-disciplinary areas and public and private sectors. We promote cross-disciplinary collaboration in both public and private sectors. Our program also has one of the nation’s largest sustained workshop and our stewardship of the Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 in Australia won us international acclaim.
APR.Intern provides a link between AMSI’s member institutions and the wider business community. Organisations contact APR.Intern with short-term research focussed projects and we aim to find post-graduate students working in the field to assist the development of tools and/or resources to help tackle the problem.
Sometimes these projects are hands on: students are in the field or the lab. Other times, students work on a theoretical problem, build software, simulate circumstances and predict outcomes. Either way, this program is unique. Many businesses cannot hire an academic or expert to assist with a short-term R&D project: APR.Intern provides them the opportunity.
Don’t forget, APR.Intern services all facets of Australian industry, whether the problem lies in marketing, refining analytical tools, software engineering or biomedical science, AMSI’s access to Australian universities means we can source experts across all disciplines.
