MAV Annual Conference

Welcome to MAV18 – Our theme for this year’s conference is Teachers Creating Impact.

The Mathematical Association of Victoria invites you to the 55th Annual Conference (MAV18) in Melbourne from Thursday 6 – Friday 7 December 2018.

At the heart of MAV’s Annual Conference are teachers. Each year over 1400 mathematics educators including teachers, academics, policy makers, curriculum experts and resource developers come together to share their collective expertise, experiences and ideas. That’s what makes our conference great!

Learn from each other as we share best practice, new ideas and innovative approaches around how:

  • sharing action research and evidence is improving practice
  • technology can be used as a valuable tool to support teaching and learning
  • critical and creative thinking can be embedded into the classroom
  • networks and communities of practice can support excellence and improvement.

Don’t miss out on this invaluable opportunity at MAV18 to share and discuss excellence in maths while making social and professional connections in a dynamic
