Footprints in Time: The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) is a national study of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children living across urban, regional and remote areas. LSIC is administered by the Australian Department of Social Services. The study is in its eleventh year. Indigenous interviewers visit families to talk with parents, carers, teachers and the children themselves. The study collects information about health and well-being, identity, cultural engagement, language use, major life events and school engagement. We outline some preliminary findings about mathematics achievement in relation to the student’s social, cultural and environmental contexts. We also look at data about question types where Indigenous students perform well relative to the PAT Maths norms. Further research opportunities for using the LSIC data are discussed.
