Exclusive event only for Maths Active Schools

Primary and Secondary school teachers at schools with MAS accreditation.

It is one thing to survive, but another to thrive! This whole day event will focus on how to embrace challenge to maximise teacher and student engagement and learning. The day will commence with Peter Sullivan focusing on developing lessons and sequences to challenge and engage students. The middle of the day will consist of a structured feedback session for schools to provide input into how they overcome leadership and teacher level challenges. The day will conclude with mathematician Noman Do. Norm will engage participants with the beauty and elegance of mathematics. This will be a hands and interactive day.


Peter Sullivan

Peter Sullivan is an Emeritus Professor at Monash University. Peter has extensive experience in research and teaching in teacher education. He was an editor of the Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education for 8 years and is now the editor of the Mathematics Education Research Journal. He is a past President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and was the author of the Shape Paper and lead writer of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics.

Norman Do

Norm is, first and foremost, a self-confessed maths geek! He is currently a Senior Lecturer 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 five-year-old son probably does very much the same thing at school!) 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’.
