New Zealand Mathematical Society Education Group

The New Zealand Mathematical Society Education Group aims to provide the New Zealand community with independent and influential commentary on mathematical education issues.

The education group is currently considering two focus areas, with a subcommittee concentrating on each of them:

1. Liaison between education sectors

The goal of this subcommittee is to ensure that there is effective coordination between the different sectors of the education community: primary, secondary, and tertiary. The convenor of this subcommittee is Dillon Mayhew (dillon.mayhew@vuw.ac.nz).

2. 21st century mathematics education

This subcommittee will consider the future of mathematics education: how it is changing, and how educators will need to respond. The convenor of the subcommittee is Stephen McConnachie (s.mcconnachie@middleton.school.nz).

This list shows the current members of the education group, and indicates membership in the two subcommittees:

  • Pip Arnold (Cognition Education) (1)
  • Robin Averill (Victoria University of Wellington) (1)
  • Peter Bier (University of Auckland) (1,2); Ian Clark (Wellington College) (1)
