Abstract

There are well-recognised problems with student participation and achievement in mathematics and science, and with the teaching of these subjects, that are shared internationally. Of particular concern are widespread shortages of suitable secondary mathematics and science teachers and the teaching of mathematics and science in primary schools, lower levels of student participation in mathematics and science at senior secondary and tertiary levels and declining student performance on some national and international measures of achievement in these subjects.
