For Teachers

At the heart of our vision to help students to reach their mathematical potential are the teachers and schools who offer our competitions and programs.

 

Programs

The Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) runs competitions in mathematics, informatics, and statistics as well as extension programs (digIT and Curious Minds) for students of all abilities.

All of the competitions are fun and engaging, with many of the problems set in situations familiar to students and showing the relevance of mathematics and informatics in their everyday lives. The problems are also designed to stimulate discussion and can be used by teachers and students as springboards for investigation.

Each year your school is sent a school code and a password for using our online registration system. If you do not have a record of this information please contact our office directly. The school code does not change year to year but the password changes annually.

 

Teacher workshops

The Australian Mathematics Trust has been conducting a series of Teacher workshops in most states and territories. Our workshops are accredited through partner organisations to provide Institute Registered professional development for the maintenance of accreditation at Proficient Teacher/Professional Competence.

Contact AMT if you’re interested in workshops in your area or in hosting workshops.

 

Resources

To prepare students for both the Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) and Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT), the GetSet online training program,  offer problem sets and timed practice sets to give students an experience of what they will face in the competitions.

AMT Publishing offers a range of books, past papers and merchandise. Our publications include collections of problems of all standards with their solutions as well as pedagogical materials and problem-solving books.
