The 2017 Colloquium will be hosted by the University of Auckland (City campus) from Tuesday 5 December to Thursday 7 December, with a welcome on the Monday evening.
The annual Colloquium brings together the mathematical community of New Zealand while welcoming overseas visitors to join us.
Time will be dedicated to the discussion of all aspects of pure and applied mathematics and statistics. Talks will be given by internationally recognized leaders in the field and also by emerging researchers and postgraduate students.
The deadline for submitting an abstract for a contributed talk or poster has been extended; the new and final submission deadline is Friday 3 November.
A regular feature of NZMS colloquiums is a Teacher Day, with a programme of talks, workshops and presentations on mathematics education issues of relevance to secondary school and tertiary teachers and lecturers of mathematics.
This year’s Teacher Day will be held on Wednesday, 6 December. Registration is FREE for NZ school teachers attending for the Teacher Day only.
We welcome presentations and posters from mathematicians, university lecturers, school teachers, and mathematics education researchers on the theme:
Enhancing our Students’ Mathematical Experience at secondary school and tertiary settings
Presentations may take one of the following formats:
- Practical reports on innovations in teaching, learning, and outreach
- Reports of mathematics education research
- Workshops for starting or continuing conversations across secondary and tertiary educational sectors
- Panel discussions or debates
The NZMS Education Committee will be holding workshops dedicated to conversations around advocating for mathematics in upcoming reviews of the NCEA Standards and Curriculum. We particularly welcome strong input from school teachers, university lecturers, mathematics education researchers and mathematicians in contributing to this important conversation.
