Welcome to the Mathematical Association of Tasmania. This site contains valuable information about mathematics events and education in Tasmania for schools, teachers, parents and students (from Kindergarten to Grade 12), and for anyone interested in mathematics education in Tasmania.

The Mathematical Association of Tasmania (MAT) was founded in 1961 and is a non-profit, volunteer-run 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). We promote and support AAMT's vision of "a society of mathematically capable citizens who understand and value mathematics and its contribution to the lives of all Australians".
