ACSME 2013 – Papers in mathematics education

Deb and Joann attended the Australian Conference on Science and Mathematics Education in Canberra last week.  We attended the discipline day on Thursday and were part of interesting discussions on maths support and first year transition and attended a workshop on maths assessment.  The discipline day is a valuable chance to meet other maths academics working in teaching and learning positions.  On Friday Deb presented a talk on the project.  She outlined our progress so far on collecting data on the roles and responsibilties of academics coordinating first-year mathematics, the challenges our interviewees have talked to us about and the possible approaches to establishing a network. Our presentation is here: acsme
