In person
Footscray Park


Mathematics is a core discipline for understanding and explaining much of the modern world. Mathematics can provide you with many wonderful “aha!” moments when you see the truth of something, or the connections between two seemingly different topics. It also provides superb “brain-training”, with its logical rigour, and its emphasis on problem solving.

Mathematics is also supremely satisfying to teach, as you introduce your students to its riches, its applications, and its beauty. Now is a good time to study mathematics, as there is a huge shortage of well-trained teachers. With a mathematics method you will be welcome at any school!
