Connecting Big Ideas In Maths: What, Why and How?

The ‘Connecting Big Ideas in Maths’ conference provides strategies and tools for a whole-school approach to connecting the ‘Big Ideas’ in primary mathematics, to help transform the teaching and learning of mathematics at your school.

Registering your team is easier than ever!

We know that schools can be busy places. So for our Big Ideas conference we’ve made it easier than ever to secure your spot. No need to register or work out who’s going to which session.


  1. Decide how many tickets you need

We can’t wait to see you there.

Who should attend?

This is a school team-based conference. Schools can send a team of up to eight educators, however, individual delegates may still attend as it will be a wonderful networking opportunity with up to 200 delegates in attendance. For larger school teams, please contact Anita. Your school team could include the following educators:

  • Classroom teachers, K-2

  • Classroom teachers, Y3-6

  • Numeracy / Mathematics Coordinator

  • Instructional Leaders

  • Head of Curriculum

  • Principal, Deputy Principal, Assistant Principals

What to expect

Spend a whole day learning with Anita and Tim. Connect with your team, be inspired with 5 ground-breaking sessions (no need to choose sessions or change rooms!) and wrap up with a dedicated planning session for you and your team.

Theme: Connecting big ideas in maths: What, why and how?

The Big Ideas in maths are where many student ‘Aha!’ moments come from, and are one of the cornerstones of deep mathematical understanding, as opposed to solving mathematical problems through learning techniques which do not necessarily reflect or use deep mathematical thinking.

The Big Ideas in maths run through all grades and ages, and are underpin many areas of the curriculum. They form one of the foundations of a Whole School Approach to Mathematics, which sits at the heart of high quality mathematics teaching and learning.

What you'll get out of it

  • Know what the Big Ideas in maths are and why they’re important

  • Learn how to work smarter, not harder in classrooms

  • Gain strategies and tools to lead a whole-school approach to maths, grounded in current research

  • Develop a deeper understanding of how student learning progresses in mathematics

  • Learn how to use the interactive online NSW Mathematics K-10 Syllabus to make the maths visible

  • Leave with research-informed ideas and ready-to-use classroom resources

  • See the strategies in action with 30 days free access to demonstration lesson videos


Completing Primary Mathematics Conference 2018: Connecting Big Ideas in Maths – What, Why and How? will contribute 5 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 2.5.2, 6.2.2, 6.3.2 and 6.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
