Mathematics and Gender Workshop 2018
19 – 21 June 2018

AMSI’s Mathematics and Gender Workshop brings together Academics in both Mathematics and Education, Teachers and Government representatives.  The 3-day workshop aims to develop strategies and advance practical ways to address maths anxiety of students and teachers and increase  students’ confidence in and attitudes towards mathematics.
