CARMA Research Group
Mathematics Education Research
Leader: Liz Stojanovski
We have interests spanning tertiary and secondary mathematics education, with strong threads relating to equity, enabling and excellence. Topics of interest to our group members include: inquiry learning, inquiring learning as benefiting equity and access, the relationship between formal and informal learning, computational and algorithmic thinking, the use of ICT and more broadly of Tools in teaching and learning mathematics and statistics, experimental mathematics and visualisation as learning and engagement tools, the fitness for purpose of textbooks in learning, cognitive load theory, dispositions that promote learning, growth mindsets, problem and project based learning, authentic learning, learning communities and communities of practice.
We have close connections in the Centre for Teaching and Learning, the English Language and Foundations studies unit and the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education (CEEHE).

This national and international two-day symposium will address the pressing challenge of how to Indigenise mathematical practice at Universities, both in education and research. The methodology is of collaboration and sharing of knowledge and worldviews from within both Indigenous cultures and the cultures of mathematics and its allied disciplines.
