Primary Mathematics AssociationThe Famous PMA Seminar Day


In 2019, the theme is 'The Beauty of Mathematics'

A date for your diary - the Primary Mathematics Association (Auckland) One Day Seminar is to be held on the 23rd March 2019 at Waipuna Conference Centre.

Keynote: Anthony Harradine

"Mathematics (in its full form) seems to have virtually a universal pronunciation, but does it have a universal meaning? In my experience, individuals’ conceptions of mathematics differ wildly. If I am right, that might go some way to explaining why the experiences of learners differ wildly. By looking at some examples of beautiful mathematics (classroom applicable) we will ponder some categories that might help us to clarify what we mean when conversing about mathematics, which might lead (one day) to a more consistent experience for learners."

Anthony Harradine began teaching mathematics in 1984. His many mentors have taught him lots about mathematics and statistics, problem solving, and research. In the recent past, his professional time has been filled with a variety of tasks that include: facilitator of problem-solving workshops, mathematical-person in residence, leader of a unique STEM project (eduKart), Advisory Board Member (The University of Adelaide, Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences), Prime Ministerial working group member (Transforming Learning and the Transmission of Knowledge), consultant, web application developer, curriculum writer and teacher.
