MAV 17 Conference


Call for Options will close 30 June!

We have had a fantastic response to our Call for Options. Don’t delay in sharing your experiences and knowledge with your colleagues.

Call for Options will close on 30 June 2017 (three weeks to go).

This year we are asking for submissions from education experts who want to join us in exploring the question, ‘What does excellence look like?’

There are five themes:

annual sponsors logos


Developing growth mindsets in the classroom, amongst educators, and at a school and policy level. Identifying best practice across these sectors to support students to have a healthy approach to learning mathematics. Promoting that maths is fun and that everyone can do it, and valuing mathematics in society.



An integral part of teaching and learning.  Providing opportunities and tools for educators to identify areas of strength and weakness and to diagnose common misunderstandings.  Investigating NAPLAN and other standardised testing, and how it can help inform local practice and policy.



Targeted approaches to create and embed deeper understanding by developing new pedagogy and exploring comprehensive resources to equip educators on all aspects of the mathematics curriculum. Using diagnostic tools to deliver personalised learning experiences and content to students.

 Hands On


Innovation in online learning, technology and STEM. Interactive educational games, engaging and rich tasks, online learning, and activities for learning enhancement. Focussing on 21st century skills and capabilities including problem solving, mathematical communication, creativity, innovation and critical thinking. Purpose, place and role of models and modelling in mathematics.  Investigate pedagogy in the classroom and how modelling can be used to help students learn.

 Shifting the Narrative

Shifting the Narrative

Move away from 'how bad the results are' and capitalise on what is working well in Victorian schools. Working collectively to improve student achievement through evidence- based approaches at all levels of the system: teachers, schools, school leadership, government, parents and students. Working in learning partnerships.
