“Taking research ideas and making them accessible to the audiences who might use them is a key responsibility of my job. I hope my love of teaching mathematics and belief that all of us can experience at least a little of the wonder of mathematics shines through.
As a member of our Centre for Research in Mathematics Education (CeRME), you will have access to a range of mathematics educators and their research interests. CeRME brings together experts in mathematics education to work on a common theme: the place of mathematics education and its transformative potential in New Zealand, the Pacific region and the world.
The challenge is to support teacher learning so that teachers’ classroom practices improve in ways that are productive for all students’ learning. “
