The theme for MAV22 Annual Conference is ‘Valuing Mathematics in a Changing World’ and will focus on valuing mathematics across our education system and society.

Mathematics plays a crucial role in our personal, professional and civic lives. Mathematics is the foundation for responding to and managing societal issues, such as pandemics, environmental and social problems. At work, mathematics is used every day to communicate, plan, visualise, monitor, evaluate systems and processes, interrogate data and information, and predict outcomes in an increasingly information rich and technologically advanced society. At a personal level, mathematics is used in context and underpins our ability to make informed decisions about personal finance or health, and recreation where numeracy is required for daily life. Algorithmic thinking, often out of sight and out of mind from our day-to-day activities, underpins the new technology we see advancing around us.

As educators we want our students, parents and carers, and community to value and connect with mathematics in our fast-paced and changing world. We need to actively engage students and equip them to be problem solvers, and critical and creative users of mathematics now and in the future. This requires educators who are adaptable, innovative and flexible in their pedagogical practices.

Subthemes:

  • valuing mathematics and numeracy in society and everyday life, and their many contributions to improving individual and societal outcomes
  • valuing mathematics education as means for achieving greater equity in people’s lives, regardless of culture, background, and other factors
  • valuing and exploring how technology enhances mathematical investigation and discovery
  • exploring effective pedagogies that engage and equip students to be problem solvers, and critical and creative users of mathematics
  • valuing evidence-based teaching and learning resources, assessment and professional development

Recordings from Rooms 1 to 10 will be available shortly for purchase.
