Connect Four Image

Connect Four will see representatives of key national initiatives in mathematics (Maths300, reSolve, Reframing Mathematical Futures II and Tempest) come together to show you how the projects can work in tandem in your classroom. There will be a focus on student learning and engagement.

  • Reframing Mathematical Futures II: Di Siemon, Marj Horne and Rosemary Callingham will showcase the Learning and Assessment Framework that identifies where students’ mathematical learning is placed with reference to algebraic, spatial and statistical reasoning progressions.
  • reSolve (Maths by Inquiry): Steve Thornton, Kristen Tripet and Tasmanian Teacher Champions will show how the rich tasks developed in their project may be integrated in a coordinated student learning programme.
  • Maths300: Lauren BeamsBirsin Reynolds and Matt Skoss will show how Maths300 lessons can help teachers to explore and reflect on their practice.
  • TEMPEST: Kim Beswick, Sharon Fraser and Greg Oates will show how Maths300, RMFII and reSolve may form a coordinated Professional Learning programme, with a focus on learning how to the evaluate the effectiveness of professional learning.

This exciting professional learning opportunity will take place in:

  • Launceston on Monday 18th June 2018 at the University of Tasmania (Newnham Campus, Sir Raymond Ferrall Centre) from 9am - 3:30pm
  • Hobart on Wednesday 20th June 2018 at the Professional Learning Institute (9 Timsbury Road, Glenorchy) from 9am - 3:30pm

COST: $20 for MAT Members and $40 for non-members (to sign up for MAT membership, click on the "Membership" tab above). This event is a collaboration between the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, the Department of Education Tasmania, the University of Tasmania and the Mathematical Association of Tasmania, which enables us to offer a fantastic price for attending teachers.
