Description

MAT Conference - Reasoning: Putting the logic into Maths

Key Note - Colleen Vale

Colleen Vale is Professor of Mathematics Education in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. Equity and social justice in mathematics education is a focus of her research and scholarly activity. She is renowned for her research in gender equity and digital technologies in mathematics education, out-of-field teaching in STEM and learning and teaching mathematical reasoning. Colleen’s research interest in out-of-field teachers arose through provision of professional learning programs for teachers in low-socio economic schools when employed at Victoria University.

Whilst employed as Associate Professor at Deakin University Colleen led a team of researchers to conduct research on primary teachers’ perceptions of mathematical reasoning, primary students’ mathematical reasoning, and primary teachers’ planning that promote and enhance students’ mathematical reasoning to advance the theoretical understandings in the field. The team also conducted a Commonwealth Government funded study of the assessment of mathematical reasoning which included the production of teachers’ resources for reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry for the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and the Academy of Science.

The 2019 Maths Conference will be held in Burnie on the North West Coast of Tasmania. A jam packed schedule has been planned with loads of opportunities to see brilliant presenters and obtain resources or ideas that will enhance your current mathematical teaching. We have organised a great dinner at the Hellyer Distillery, where we know the food and drinks are divine. Get in quick as there are limited tickets available that include the dinner due to limited capacity at the function centre. As always, we have scored great goody bag items and end of conference giveaways. When ordering tickets, choose the ticket relevant to your membership (individual, institutional or non-member) and decide if you want to come to the full conference (includes Friday night keynote speaker and dinner) or Saturday only. If you are attending the Early Careers day and would also like to come to the Friday night keynote and dinner, choose the Early Careers bundle. Please contact organisers if you have any further questions or if tickets don't cater for your specific need.
