Mathematical Association of Tasmania

Welcome to the website of the Mathematical Association of Tasmania. This site contains valuable information for teachers of mathematics from Kindergarten to year 12, and for anyone interested in mathematics in Tasmania.

The Mathematical Association of Tasmania (MAT) was founded in 1961 and is a non-profit organisation supporting Mathematics Teachers from K-12. MAT aims to link teachers through association activities, our annual conference, and regular communication. Through our activities and services we aim to promote mathematics education and support teachers in engaging their students in the learning of mathematics.

MAT is an affiliate of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT) and also of The Network of Education Associations in Tasmania (NEAT).

  • AAMT has recently released Top Drawer Teachers which contains loads of resources for teachers.  It comprises a series of "drawers" on topics teachers may find challenging in the Australian Mathematics Curriculum (the idea being that we keep things that we want handy in the top drawer!!). The contents of each drawer were written by leading groups of academics. Go to
  • There is now an online community attached to Scootle. You can join and connect with teachers across the country, ask questions and share ideas.  To join go to Scootle and then click on the community link. Once you join you can search for networks to join (e.g. Maths F-10, iPad users etc) or establish your own. Its a cross between Facebook and Twitter.
