Our planet faces many challenges with many more yet to come.
Australia’s mathematicians and statisticians are playing an integral role in identifying and solving these issues.
Whether it is addressing changes in our environment, minimising health risks for our population, securing adequate, nutritious food supplies, or building and powering infrastructure for this generation and the next, you will always find science and mathematics at the core of the solution.
We must all keep working towards increased literacy around mathematical sciences and the branches of chemistry, physics or biology which use them.
In 2013, let us recognise, support and celebrate our mathematicians and statisticians.
