The Mathematics Education Special Sessions at the 2014 Australia and New Zealand Mathematics Convention were jointly organised by Deb King, Bill Barton (University of Auckland) and Joann Cattlin.
We had a great response to the call for papers with many more than expected, necessitating sessions on every day of the conference. There were 27 presenters from Australia and New Zealand covering a wide range of topics in mathematics education. A number of the presentation power points are available below. A full listing of presentations and abstracts is contained in the conference booklet (listed under Special Sessions – Mathematics Education, pp.23–24).
