In this series, we focus on the transdisciplinary notions of representation, classification and structure through examples which span disciplines.

Mathematical Thinking & Inquiry

This Resource Package aims to introduce students to mathematical thinking and inquiry. This involves concepts such as axiom, definition, conjecture, proof and theorem.
