5 Practices


Productive mathematical discussions lead to students who can think, reason and engage effectively in quantitative problem solving, characteristics which are much needed but may not routinely emerge from our classrooms. So just how can teachers create such discussions?

Finding the maths in that…
Mathematical Questioning, Assumptions and Modelling - This session is designed to encourage participants to nurture a culture of mathematical questioning and stimulating excitement in students to recognise and explore the mathematical basis of what might seem to be the everyday.

Connect with Maths Session 2: Coding in Mathematics

[Maths in Action]
Saturday, Aug 20, 2016 
Time: 11:30am – 12:20pm (ACT, VIC, TAS, NSW, QLD)
         11:00am – 11:50am (SA, NT)
           9:30am – 10:25am (WA)

Coding in Mathematics
Did you know you can do coding on graphics calculators? This hands on workshop will examine the “10 minutes of code” principle. We will use the TI nspire calculator to code some very basic programs in mathematics. You will be able to take away ideas ready to implement and use in your classroom. This is aimed at students from Years 7 to 12 and no previous coding experience of any kind is required. TI nspire calculators will be provided if you do not have your own.

Tim is currently Head of Mathematics at the Hutchins School in Hobart. Over his teaching career he has spent 7 years at Canberra Grammar School and 2 years at Radford College




Connect with Maths Session 3: Update on the Maths Inside project

[Maths in Action]
Saturday, Aug 20, 2016
Time: 3:45pm– 4:35pm (ACT, VIC, TAS, NSW, QLD)
         3:15pm – 4:05pm (SA, NT)
         1:45pm – 2:23pm (WA)

Update on the Maths Inside project
This project aims to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics in years 8-12 by providing case study videos of CSIRO scientists talking about their work and the role of mathematics in it. Associated classroom activities are also being developed that link to the case studies and involve investigations and problem solving. Popular titles are “Bees with backpacks”, “3D mapping with Zebedee”, “Reach for the stars”.

Mary Coupland


Presenter: Mary Coupland
Dr Mary Coupland teaches first year mathematics at the University of Technology, Sydney. With a team from the School of Mathematical Sciences at UTS and the School of Education, she is involved in the “Maths Inside” project funded by the Commonwealth Government. This is a collaboration with CSIRO and AAMT.
