This year’s Secondary Convention focuses on mathematics being inclusive and accessible to all. The theme ‘Everything counts. Everyone counts.’ highlights that every student is important and can engage with mathematics regardless of ability. Furthermore, we as educators, should make every moment count by capatalising on every learning opportunity to pique our students’ interest and harness their potential.
The event will be held at the Crown Convention Centre, Burswood on 20 and 21 November with two highly-respected educators delivering the keynotes. Dan Finkel, is the founder and director of Seattle-based Operations of Math for Love and co-creator of two award-winning maths games, and Di Siemon, professor of Mathematics Education at RMIT, is the director of the Reframing Mathematical Futures II Project. Both speakers are extensively involved in mathematics professional development and will share a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will inspire all delegates.
The Heads of Learning Area (HOLA) Day on 22 November will include a panel discussion and interactive workshops covering a range of topical subjects such as numeracy and STEM. Over the 3 days there will be plenty of opportunities for professional growth and networking, and we encourage you to register as soon as possible to take advantage of the early bird discount.
