2022 WA Virtual Maths Conference
The Mathematical Association of Western Australia held our first ever full virtual conference on 28 March 2022.
We were pleased to have Tom Crawford as our keynote. Tom joined us live from the UK and is the face of the Tom Rocks Maths outreach program.
Our theme Maths: Engaging Everyone Everywhere encapsulated inclusion despite location.
The virtual conference aims to assist teachers from early childhood education, primary and secondary with their professional knowledge, practice, and engagement in mathematics education.
Dr. Tom Crawford
Tom is an Early-Career Fellow at St Edmund Hall and the face of the award-winning Tom Rocks Maths outreach programme that aims to make maths fun, entertaining and accessible to all. Tom completed his undergraduate degree at Oxford before obtaining his PhD in applied maths at the University of Cambridge. When not talking all things maths on YouTube (including for the amazing Numberphile) or on the BBC (where he previously worked as a science journalist), he can be found getting new maths-themed tattoos or pretending he’s a rockstar.
