Keynote 1: 9am: Promoting positive learner identity through multifaceted mathematics, Dr. Lisa Darragh.

Recently the government announced a numeracy strategy that included reference to a “common practice model” for the teaching of mathematics. What this model may be is still a mystery; there is certainly a great variety of models for good mathematics teaching depicted in the research and in practice. In this presentation I will share my own idea of what good mathematics teaching might look like, which I call “multifaceted mathematics”. I use the lens of learner identity to justify why multifaceted mathematics may be a good practice model in the secondary school classroom.

Lisa is a senior lecturer and researcher at The University of Auckland. She really enjoys supervising students, from honours to PhD and is often looking for enthusiastic teachers to join her as a research assistant on various projects


Keynote 2: 2pm Numeracy and numeracy across the curriculum. Karen Chow  Numeracy Lead, Ministry of Education

Mathematics and Statistics teachers are key in supporting ākonga with their numeracy development. Teachers in other learning areas can also support numeracy development.  We take a look at some of the resources available, ideas on how you might engage other learning areas and answer some questions you might have on numeracy.

Karen is currently the Learning Area Lead – Numeracy at the Ministry of Education. She has a decade’s experience of teaching at schools in Wellington.
