Oxford University Press ANZ is investigating the challenges facing mathematics students in Primary school. Your opinions will help contribute to further research and shape the direction of future mathematics publishing.
 
The mathematics skills gap in this survey refers to a lack of prerequisite knowledge and gaps in understanding across primary years levels (F–6).

To thank you for your participation, the first 200 respondents to complete the survey will receive a complimentary copy of Daily Workouts for Foundation to Year 6.
