Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (36th, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2013)

Research and the Australian Curriculum both indicate the importance of teaching students to apply their mathematical knowledge to real world problems. When developing curriculum resources for Queensland state school teachers from Prep to Year 9, the Department's mathematics team identified the significance of embedding the inquiry process in these materials. The aim of this paper is to describe the model that evolved and the adaptations of inquiry method, necessary to produce materials suitable for state-wide use.
