The Mathematical Association of Western Australia invites you to the 2020 WA Annual Maths Conference to be held at the Crown Convention Centre, Burswood from 25-27 November. This year, we have two highly respected educators, Amie Albrecht from the University of South Australia and James Russo from Monash University delivering the keynotes.
Maths is everywhere, operating in real life ways all around us. It can help you build things, shop at the grocery store, bake a cake, save money, manage time and is used in areas such as the magic of origami, the dynamics of coral reefs, the flight path to outer space, the world of micro-organisms or the wonders of patterns. The theme “Maths Takes You Places” highlights that mathematics opens doors to a variety of opportunities and exciting careers.
The conference will showcase best practice in 21st century learning, classroom resources and assessment strategies. This year the combined Primary and Secondary day on Friday 27 November will follow the Secondary and Post-Secondary day on Thursday 26 November and the Heads of Learning Area day on Wednesday 25 November.
This year MAWA will host Australia’s first hybrid mathematics conference which will allow educators from regional and remote locations in WA and beyond to access this high-quality professional learning experience virtually.
Each year the conference attracts over 800 teachers from around Western Australia and beyond. The conference represents an exciting opportunity for educators from all sectors and year groups to collaborate, network and engage with exhibitors and trade sponsors. Even delegates that attend virtually will be able to connect with and visit exhibitors online.
Maths Australia will be holding a stall on the 27th November for Primary Conference Day. Shirley Houston, qualified tutor and specialist for children with learning differences, will be there to answer and questions you may have about the program.
With a Masters Degree in Special Education, Shirley Houston has been working with, supporting and teaching students for the past 30 years. Her passion for teaching encompasses all learning styles and abilities and primarily focuses on supporting students with Special Needs to learn in a way that works for them. Shirley's warmth and down-to-earth approach makes her a favourite amongst her students.
