  2. design and implementation of a series of school pilot projects and university case studies;
  3. consultation with students, educators, academic staff, mathematics curriculum experts, Indigenous teachers and other stakeholders in the design, delivery and evaluation of the project;
  4. publication of project findings and effective digital learning resources with an Indigenous focus to a national web portal;
  5. presentation of project findings and resources to a range of forums for Indigenous student events, and professional learning events for teachers and academics;
  6. data collection to measure the success of the project against AMSPP program objectives and project objectives, and
