2024 Conference - Waikato University 25th - 27th November - call for abstracts now open


Why? The Mathematics and Statistics / Pāngarau SIG is an opportunity to bring together people around the country who are interested in this broad field of research. Some supporters of this SIG are also active members of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA), and/or NZAMT. The SIG aims to co-ordinate its activities with those of MERGA and NZAMT so that they are complementary, rather than competing.

What? The mathematics and statistics / pāngarau education special interest group aims to foster, support, participate in, and disseminate high quality research in areas relevant to mathematics education across all levels in Aotearoa. The SIG is to include researchers, postgraduate students and emerging researchers, teachers, educators, and policy makers working in the broader educational sector with an interest in mathematics and statistics / pāngarau education research.

Research of interest to this SIG will include themes such as:

  • Mathematics content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge

  • Affective aspects of learning mathematics

  • Culturally-sustaining pedagogy

  • Pāngarau at the intersection of mātauranga Māori and mathematics

  • Mathematics curriculum and assessment

  • Teacher learning and development

  • Links between policy and practice.

How? Through this SIG, discussions about mathematics and statistics / pāngarau education research projects, policy initiatives and debates, and changes in the international landscape can take place. The SIG will promote the importance of mathematics and statistics / pāngarau education and take an advocacy role to help research to influence policy and practice.

The SIG’s co-convenors, with help from members, will:

  • organise SIG events

  • coordinate the review of SIG-related abstracts for NZARE conference

  • facilitate communication with and between SIG members, e.g., via emails, the NZARE newsletter, and NZARE facebook page

  • lead the SIG’s AGM at conference.
