MAV is proud to work with and be supported by many partners from industry, education, not for profits sectors, and government. Without the support of such partners the MAV would not be the strong dynamic Association it is today. We thank all our partners and sponsors for their ongoing support.
MAV and ACER collaborate in various projects and initiatives including professional learning and at their various conferences and events. ACER’s strength in research and assessment and MAV’s expertise in mathematics education when combined provides opportunity for greater impact on learning and educational outcomes.

For 30 years, Felstead Education has been delivering high quality, innovative and engaging educational programs for students. Our broad range of live performances, presentations, and seminars have been seen by over 250,000 students and teachers in close to 1000 schools in Australia, Europe, Asia and America.
Felstead Education started their relationship with MAV in 1988 with a long running maths stage show, ‘The History of Maths’. Felstead’s motto of helping students to ‘See maths from a different angle’ resonated strongly in schools leading to MAV supporting Felstead’s love of numbers and performance to produce ‘Famous Female Mathematicians’, ‘Maths and Cricket’, ‘Maths and Soccer’ a pilot for a TV series titled ‘Maths Secret Agent’, and now the latest production – ‘The Maths Show’. MAV is the primary sponsor of the ‘The Maths Show’ and has produced related support resources for teachers to use in the classroom.
The foundation works at a whole-of-community level and with groups at high risk of gambling harm, to influence attitudes, to promote safer gambling behaviour and to offer treatment and services to people experiencing harm from gambling. To address the growing normalisation of gambling, especially in sport, the foundation’s School Education Program helps students develop healthy and informed attitudes towards gambling and to build resilience to potential harm.
MAV and the foundation have collaborated since 2015, conducting research and developing a series of VCAL numeracy units to help teachers use maths to illuminate the myths of gambling and the importance of treating recreation costs like gambling as a lower priority when budgeting.
The Melbourne Graduate School of Education at The University of Melbourne is a vibrant and exciting place to study and work. The environment is supportive and student-focused and the variety of courses are challenging. The Melbourne Graduate School of Education is home to some of the world's most recognised experts, and staff research tackles the critical issues in education policy and practice. In the annual international QS ranking exercise, the School has consistently emerged top amongst all Australian universities, and amongst the top 5 in the world.
The Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Mathematics Education Group (MEG) is made up of a dynamic team of academics who engage with cutting-edge mathematics education research and who work with teachers to apply the findings in schools to facilitate students’ mathematics learning. In 2017, MAV and MEG combined forces to deliver an inaugural two-day primary mathematics education conference. After great success the conference was continued into future years, and is building a strong reputation for its innovative and quality program.
Both MAV and MEG plan to extend their impact beyond this event, with further projects that reach out to mathematics educators. Together the MAV and MEG add to each other’s individual impact, drawing on each other’s expertise to create rich experiences and events.
