2024 Study Tour to North America

AAMT has organised a Study Tour to North America in September/October 2024 to coincide with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) annual conference in Chicago. This Study Tour brings together maths teachers, leaders and researchers from across Australia in a unique professional development experience.

The conference allows delegates to hear from some leading global experts in mathematics education, while school visits in the US and Canada provide truly international insights into the maths education landscape, providing opportunities to:

  • Explore innovative teaching methodologies and develop pedagogical practice
  • Enhance cross-cultural understanding and appreciation of diverse educational systems
  • Foster collaboration, knowledge-sharing and professional networking
  • Cultivate a global perspective on educational challenges and opportunities
  • Build mathematics education leadership skills

Have you ever considered writing a paper for AAMT’s journals?

The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers encourages and supports new writers. Whether you’re a classroom teacher, a tertiary mathematics educator, a masters or PhD student, an experienced author or first-time writer, we want to hear from you! If you have an idea for a paper but have some questions about its suitability, send an email to our Editors. They are happy to answer questions and discuss ideas. Email: [email protected]

AAMT publishes two peer reviewed journals:

  • The Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom (APMC), and
  • The Australian Mathematics Education Journal (AMEJ).

The APMC publishes papers about the teaching and learning of mathematics applicable to early years (pre-F) and primary school students (Years F–6/7).

The AMEJ includes two sections. Section 1 is suitable for an audience of upper-primary and middle-school teachers and Section 2 is directed toward mathematics educators of senior high school and tertiary levels.
