The AAMT would like to cordially invite NZMAT members to the upcoming AAMT conference this year, in Brisbane from Jul 9 - 11. The details are given on the website: www.aamt.edu.au/whymaths 

Please find flyers below. 

As an incentive to come across the water, AAMT can offer NZAMT members a 30% discount on the registration fee. 

They are very keen to have an international dimension to the conference and have speakers from the US, Singapore and China. They also have a number of industry-based mathematicians participating to talk about maths in context, and interesting applications and careers in maths. 

The teacher program is given here

Census at School Data Collection

CaS

Census At School started its data collection on Monday (4/3/2019) and will be collecting until July 5, 2019.  We are always keen to get as many schools as possible involved.

We are currently sitting at 701 schools (including two from the Cook Islands) and 1311 teachers registered.

You can see a record of school registrations for past CensusAtSchool, and this year here (Day 0 = Launch date):

For teachers to take part they can register at https://new.censusatschool.org.nz/take-part/ .  There is some good preparation material also on this page for students to gather data in advance so that they can complete the census.  Remember that gathering and recording data is all part of the PPDAC cycle process.
