Elumat: a resource to help teachers promote language (using maths) skills

Presenter: Peter Garside

 I created elumat.com to help teachers produce self-checking puzzles that provide incentive for their students to practise numeracy and literacy skills. Every puzzle relies on their teacher embedding a coded message that is to be deciphered by the student, with the maths solutions providing the key. Come along to see how these messages can be written in any Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language, as well as other Indigenous languages around our world. Please bring your laptop to the presentation to explore this free resource.
