About QAMT | Mission Statement
Since 1922, Queensland Teachers of Mathematics have been supporting each other, to enhance the quality of mathematics through their membership of QAMT.
Our members are drawn from all levels of schooling – pre-school to tertiary – and from all systems – State, Catholic, Independent, Universities and TAFE. We also have members from interstate and overseas.
Through professional development activities, our professional journals and electronic Newsletters, problems and our competitions for students, members keep up to date with issues of mathematics teaching, and gain support for developing their students’ love of mathematics.
We are an active and enthusiastic association and I invite you to join.
