You might be surprised how often Australia's younger generation will need to use maths in their day-to-day lives. Even more surprising is how far Australia is slipping behind in numeracy standards compared to other countries. That's why we're putting our hand up to help today's students know their numbers. This way, they'll be better able to handle tomorrow's challenges.
To celebrate our 200th birthday, we're giving Australia free access to maths education through Mathspace Essentials. This new partnership will give all Australians the opportunity to boost their maths skills.
On Mathspace Essentials, students from years 3 to 12 can immerse themselves in literally thousands of interactive maths questions, covered in the Australian Curriculum.
Mathspace is a cutting edge platform that provides step-by-step learning online – to help understand the steps it takes to reach a correct answer. You also receive helpful hints and video lessons created by real maths teachers along the way.
Access Mathspace Essentials for free, thanks to Westpac (a saving of $99 per year).
Westpac and Mathspace are also introducing Solve to Save – a new program which earns financial rewards for students when they successfully complete weekly tasks using Mathspace Plus program. You need to subscribe to Mathspace Plus for $10 per week and link an eligible Westpac bank account. When the student successfully completes their weekly maths tasks, $10 will be deposited into the nominated Westpac account.

Helicopter Schools Program
The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Schools Program is a fun and educational resource developed to teach primary school students about this iconic emergency service. It has been created by Westpac, in conjunction with the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Bases, Surf Life Saving Australia and an independent education agency for students, teachers and parents to provide information about the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service and the important emergency service they provide to communities all over Australia.
Teachers can review the resources and implement them in their classroom. Ideally they would show the video episodes in class and then perform the lesson plans which align to the content. Lesson plans are also designed to be used in a flexible manner in the classroom so teachers can adapt each activity to suit their students and their schools teaching format.
The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Schools Program app also offers children an opportunity to play and learn. There are two play-based learning games – 'Rescue Rangers' and 'Westpac Little Ripper' – as well as digital lessons to educate children about the iconic emergency rescue service.
