Conference Topics

We are interested in hearing any of a wide range of topics on the teaching of mathematics and statistics at university level. In the past, for example, we have had papers on technology (computers, graphics calculators, CAS), bridging courses, large first year classes, modelling, teacher training, and the teaching of specific topics (e.g. analysis, algebra).

Invited Speakers

  • Bill Barton (New Zealand)
  • Danielle Huillet (Mozambique)
  • Bill McCallum (USA)
  • Poobhalan Pillay (South Africa)
