PiCaM (Project in Citizenship and Mathematics) endeavours to embed critical citizenship and global learning in the teaching and learning of mathematics in school

Critical citizenship and global learning – to create curricular spaces where children can realise their responsibilities as critical global citizens

Learning mathematics – to engage a diverse population of children with mathematics in their school classrooms, supporting and reinforcing their sense of themselves as inquiring mathematicians

Professional development – to enable teachers and initial teacher education students to support young people’s engagement with mathematics in the context of critical global learning

Philosophy for Children - to use ideas derived from Philosophy for Children (P4C) to create opportunities for critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity

Learning community - to help build classroom relationships which work towards creating a participatory and caring learning community
