1-2 December 2020: Mathematics and Statistics Education Sessions, AUT

Title: Free Mathematics and Statistics Education Sessions being held as part of the NZMS Online Colloquium.

Where: online
When: Tuesday-Wednesday December 01-02, 2020

The 2020 New Zealand Mathematical Society Colloquium will be hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Auckland University of Technology over the period of 1-2 December 2020.

Since COVID-19 has changed our academic delivery dramatically, we have decided that this year’s NZMS colloquium will run in a theme-based format on the following two themes:

  • COVID modelling, and
  • Online teaching and learning in the mathematical sciences

Each theme will have 3 or 4 speakers (each speaker will present a talk for 10-15 minutes), followed by panel discussions, and questions from conference participants.

In addition to the above themes, this year’s colloquium will also include the Butcher–Kalman lecture, organised special sessions, and the society’s other activities.

There will be no call for general contributed talks this year, but there is the opportunity to participate in (or organise) special interest sessions which will be held on Wednesday afternoon.
