The Canterbury Mathematical Association has the pleasure of hosting the biennial NZAMT conference in Christchurch from Tuesday 3rd October to Friday 6th October 2017. We invite you to join us and enrich the conference experience to help make it the best NZAMT event yet.

With our ‘Back to the Future’ theme this conference is simultaneously future focused and mindful of past wisdom. It embraces moving mathematics and statistics education forward with all its possibilities of incorporating innovation, expanding knowledge and technology, while at the same time, looking back, learning from and honouring what has gone before.

Deliberately broad, this theme offers speakers and delegates an opportunity to be both reflective and future-looking, to consolidate, regenerate and push the boundaries of mathematics and statistics education. Our conference will offer a thought provoking, exciting and fun programme to leave you rejuvenated and full of inspiration for your return to the classroom.

The Conference will be hosted at the newly constructed St Margaret’s College campus Christchurch/ Ōtautahi. This beautifully appointed facility is centrally located to many of Christchurch’s highlights such as the meandering Avon River/ Ōtakaro, leafy Hagley Park and the boutique retail and gourmet precincts of Merivale and Victoria Street.

Christchurch is an innovative, funky, regenerating city. It is the gateway to the majestic South Island /Te Wai Pounamu, with its mountains, ever-changing coastline and braided rivers.

We look forward to welcoming you to Christchurch. Be motivated, challenged and inspired. Look back to the future and come to NZAMT 2017.
