The Mathematical Association of Victoria invites you to participate in its annual conference; MAV17: Achieving excellence in M.A.T.H.S.
Join us in exploring the question, ‘What does excellence look like?’
Results have indicated that Australia’s international standing in Mathematics is slipping, a problem that all parties need to address. We need to consider the results, and more importantly share what is really working well in Victorian schools. Victorian schools continue to perform above the OECD average and at the upper end of results across Australia.
The MAV is dedicated to the improvement of mathematics education and at this year’s annual conference delegates will investigate the most effective approaches, tools and new technology, that education professionals can use to improve student learning outcomes.
At MAV17, learn first-hand about the latest developments in mathematics education and be inspired by the wide-range of sessions available. Network with primary, secondary and tertiary teachers; teacher educators, researchers and academics; resource providers and representatives from government and other education bodies.
Don’t miss out on this invaluable opportunity at MAV17 to share and discuss excellence in maths while making social and professional connections in a dynamic environment.
A dynamic program is currently being developed designed to explore the theme of Achieving excellence in M.A.T.H.S. The MAV is pleased to confirm the following Keynote speakers including an international speaker of high regard:
Dan Finkel is the Founder and Director of Operations of Math for Love, a Seattle-based organization devoted to transforming how math is taught and learned. A teacher of teachers and students, Dan works with schools, develops curriculum, leads teacher workshops, and gives talks on mathematics and education.
Dan is one of the creators of Prime Climb, the beautiful, colorful, mathematical board game, and of Tiny Polka Dot, the number-loving learning game for children. He is also co-architect of Seattle Public School's Summer Staircase math program, and hosts the annual Julia Robinson Math Festival in Seattle. You can see Dan's work, including his TEDx Talk "Five Principles of Extraordinary Math Teaching," at mathforlove.com.
Professor David Clarke
Professor David Clarke is Director of the International Centre for Classroom Research (ICCR) at the University of Melbourne. Over the last twenty years, his research activity has centered on capturing the complexity of classroom practice through a program of international video-based classroom research in more than 20 countries. Other significant research has addressed teacher professional learning, metacognition, problem-based learning, assessment, multi-theoretic research designs, cross-cultural analyses, curricular alignment, and the challenge of research synthesis in education.
Professor Clarke has written books on assessment and on classroom research and has published his research work in around 200 book chapters, journal articles and conference proceedings papers. The establishment of the Science of Learning Research Classroom at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education in 2015 provides Professor Clarke with access to new levels of detail and experimental precision for his classroom research.
Carmel Mesiti is Centre Coordinator of the International Centre for Classroom Research (ICCR) at the University of Melbourne. She has been involved in Education for over 20 years. She is project manager of the Lexicon Project and a research member of the Australian team. Her research interests have included lesson structure, lesson beginnings, mathematical tasks and more recently, as part of her doctoral work, the nature of differences in the pedagogical lexicons of education communities internationally.
Carmel began her career in government schools as a secondary school mathematics teacher and held leadership positions including year level coordinator and mathematics faculty coordinator.
Call for Options is now open!
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 sub-themes:
This is a chance for you to share your experiences and knowledge with your colleagues and we encourage you to submit an abstract.
Exhibiting opportunities are now available!
MAV17 exhibition is an integral part of the conference and provides a great opportunity for you to showcase your products and services in a face-to-face environment. The MAV encourages delegates to visit all exhibition booths to discuss products and services that are available to meet their needs.
This year there will be further opportunities for delegates to interact with exhibitors with both lunch sessions moving to the exhibition area.
Book a booth today by downloading the Conference Exhibitor Prospectus.
