Teachers, policy makers and researchers will gather in Melbourne next week to review state-of-the-art research in mathematics education and debate how lessons learned from this research can be put into practice.
The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) annual conference opens on Monday. The conference is a sell out and, with around 800 delegates, one of ACER’s largest ever conferences.
ACER’s chief executive Professor Geoff Masters says the theme of this year’s conference was chosen to highlight that mathematics education is an area of high priority in Australia.
