MAV17 Conference keynote presentations
- five reasons to attend

Last month we asked keynote presenter Dan Finkel from Math for Love and sponsored by Maths Pathway, the question ‘Give five outcomes delegates will take way from your keynote?’. This E-Alert we asked the same question to Sarah Ferguson – Clairvaux College and David Butler – University of Adelaide.
