More Keynote Presenters Confirmed
We are pleased to confirm the following presenters
Dr David Butler
Dr David Butler is the coordinator of the Maths Learning Centre (MLC) at the University of Adelaide. He helps hundreds of students every year to learn and love maths wherever they meet it. Before joining the MLC nine years ago, David completed a Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences with honours, a Graduate Diploma in Education, two years of teaching in high schools and a PhD in Finite Geometry.
David believes that it is not good enough to simply help people cope with the maths they are made to learn, but that maths should also be a joyful and empowering experience for all people.
Norm is, first and foremost, a self-confessed maths geek! He is currently a Lecturer and ARC Research Fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University. He spends his time there playing with strange shapes, counting interesting objects, and wondering what might be true. (His three-year-old son probably does very much the same thing at kindergarten!)
Norm is heavily involved in mathematics enrichment for school students, chairing the Australian Mathematical Olympiad Problems Committee and lecturing at the National Mathematics Summer School. His contributions in education have been recognised by a B. H. Neumann Award for “significant contribution to the enrichment of mathematics learning in Australia” and an Australian Awards for University Teaching Citation for “outstanding contributions to student learning”.
Sarah has been teaching in primary schools for about 15 years as a classroom teacher and in mathematics leadership roles. She completed her Masters in Early Numeracy in 2006 and her doctorate focusing on scaffolding and low attaining mathematics students in 2011.
Sarah teaches Prep three days a week and teaches pre-service teachers at ACU on-line. She is currently the editor of Prime Number magazine.
Sarah is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University and has many years of experience in primary and secondary teacher education. Prior to work in universities, she was a secondary teacher of mathematics.
Sarah has held a long-term interest in research that will help address Australia’s ‘long tail’ of underachievement in mathematics. While many efforts to shrink the tail are focused on interventions to remediate poor proficiency with basic skills once students have already fallen behind, Sarah’s research is focused on how classroom-based teaching practice can be targeted to address individual patterns of difficulty before children fall behind. Sarah is currently investigating the role confidence plays in the development of retrieval-based strategies and how number fluency can be taught using cognitively-demanding tasks.
