2019 Primary and Early Childhood Mathematics Education Conference

MAV and The University of Melbourne Melbourne Graduate School of Education

The Mathematical Association of Victoria (MAV) in collaboration with the Melbourne Graduate School of Education’s Mathematics Education Group (MEG) present a conference focusing on primary school mathematics education.

After great success over the past two years, we will again hold a conference for primary mathematics leaders and teachers.

In 2019 we will strengthen day 1 to focus more on leadership.

Save the dates:

Leading whole school improvement in mathematics education   Improving classroom-based learning; Primary and Early Childhood

For mathematics leaders and those with an interest in mathematics education leadership within primary schools, including Principals, Deputy Principals, Numeracy Leaders, Academics, Vic DET, VCAA and others.

Themes for the day:

  • investigate the tools and techniques to support improved practice through collaborative professional learning communities
  • develop an understanding of how to measure whole school improvement
  • explore an understanding of the maths proficiency strands and general capabilities, and the teaching practices to support student development in mathematics
  • support teachers to lead the integration of both digital and design technologies within mathematics education.

This day is designed for primary teachers and early childhood educators regardless of experience level. Sessions will build your confidence and develop your professional ability as a mathematics educator in a supportive, hands-on and engaging series of workshops.

Themes for the day:

  • improve your mathematics content & content pedagogical knowledge
  • work towards greater cognitive engagement through inquiry-based approaches
  • strengthen your ability to cater for diverse ranges of student needs (differentiation)
  • consolidate approaches to embedding critical and creative thinking
  • discover best practice integration of both digital and design technologies within mathematics education.

This truly collaborative event is hosted at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, The University of Melbourne and includes high-quality presenters and a variety of session options. Learn from leaders with practical and educational research experience, from The Mathematical Association of Victoria and Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
