Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have long observed the phases of the Moon and used it to understand the tides and the effect on the environment around them.
Navigating our way through country
Water, Mathematics, Year 4
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge of the features of the world and navigation methods involved geographical, astronomical and environmental knowledge that was transmitted by various means, including narratives, songs, star maps, and visual designs.
Mathematics in nature: understanding bushfire
Fire, Mathematics, Year 6
Exploring how mathematics can be used to understand and describe how bushfires spread across a landscape, and how different environmental factors such as wind and terrain influence bushfire behaviour.
