Amie AlbrechtDr Amie Albrecht is a mathematician and Senior Lecturer at the University of South Australia. Her mathematics research largely focuses on solving practical industry-inspired challenges. Amie has taught mathematics at university for fifteen years, at first teaching just like she’d been taught. Around five years ago she realised the disconnect between traditional procedural-based teaching and the creative, active and collaborative ways in which professional mathematicians work.

Amie’s teaching interests are now focused on developing mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills by giving students opportunities to think deeply about mathematical ideas, leading them to share delightful and unexpected ways of approaching problems. She also works to inspire and equip pre- and in-service teachers to incorporate authentic mathematical practice in their classrooms.

Amie has presented at maths teacher conferences across Australia, including giving the Hanna Neumann Lecture at the 2015 AAMT Conference. She served as Vice-President and Treasurer of the Mathematical Association of South Australia, currently sits on the national mathematics education committees of the Australian Mathematical Society and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, and works with the SA Department for Education.

Amie is always looking to improve her teaching practice, which includes currently undertaking a Master of Teaching, blogging at, and actively tweeting in the ‘Math Twitter Blog-o-Sphere’ (#MTBoS) as @nomad_penguin.

Matt SkossMatt Skoss is an experienced classroom teacher, having taught for over 30 years at Alice Springs High School, Centralian Senior College and Centralian Middle School.

He has enjoyed several curriculum roles with a Maths and ICT focus for NT Department of Education. His current role is as the Manager of Engagement, on the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry Project, working for the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT) in Adelaide. AAMT is a partner with the Australian Academy of Science on the reSolve Project.

Developing the Maths300 professional learning resources and lessons is also a key focus of Matt’s work with AAMT.

Matt has a strong belief in using ICT to make Maths accessible and highly visual to all students, using digital resources. He likes to make powerful, but incidental use of learning technologies and Web 2.0 tools to amplify student learning.
