Recognition for WooTube’s Eddie Woo, Australia's favourite maths teacher

AUSTRALIA’S favourite maths teacher, Eddie Woo, has been announced as The Hills Shire Council’s 2020 Australia Day Ambassador.
 
The father-of-three, who is renowned for making his classroom lessons available on his popular WooTube channel spoke to Australia Day audience at the Hills about what he loves most about being Australian.
 
Mr Woo said he was delighted to be the 2020 Australia Day Ambassador.
 
“My parents uprooted their entire lives and moved to Australia in the ‘70s so that my siblings and I could be born into this wonderful country - yet I know that, having lived here my entire life, I often take this ‘land abounding in nature’s gifts’ for granted,” Mr Woo said.
 
“I don’t want to forget how much there is to be thankful for - Australia Day is a reminder to stop and pay attention to the daily ‘gift’ of being able to call this country my home,” he added.
 
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said Mr Woo is an important influencer whose passion for education is not only benefiting students and teachers around Australia, but also around the world.
 
“Mathematics is a crucial subject in the curriculum of primary and high school students and is also used in our everyday lives, and Mr Woo presents a refreshing approach to teaching this important subject,” Mayor Byrne said.
 
Mr Woo’s  WooTube channel has over 700,000 subscribers worldwide on formulas and solutions within the subject of mathematics.
 
What started as posting for a single student who was sick with cancer and missing school, has now evolved into the goal of destigmatising maths and making the universally dreaded subject fun.
 
As well as his online tutorial channel and teaching position at Cherrybrook Technology High School, Mr Woo is also the Leader of Mathematics Growth for the NSW Department of Education, the Education Ambassador for the University of Sydney and author of two books, including Woo’s Wonderful World of Maths.
 
Mr Woo was also a TED Talk speaker in 2018 and was named Australia’s Local Hero in the 2018 Australian of the Year Awards.
