Past Events

Mathscraft: Westside Christian College, Ipswich QLD

When: 

9:00am – 12:30pm, Thursday 17 August 2017

Mathscraft

Mathscraft is a fun event for high school students, which aims to give them a taste of what 'real' maths is like. They are led through finding ways to solve problems by spotting patterns, making conjectures, and convincing themselves and others. They'll also have the opportunity to meet and work with research mathematicians.

This event is free, with morning tea provided. It's aimed at year 6 students with any level of interest in maths.

 

Maths Arcade @ University of Melbourne

When: 

Tue 15 Aug 2017, 5:30pm - 7:00pm

The MATHS ARCADE is a night of everyone's favourites: computer games and mathematics! Just like a rad video arcade back in the day, we'll have heaps of awesome games, and you don’t even need any coins. Come and compete to get your initials in the Hall of Fame! There will be plentiful food, drinks, maths and fun. Supported by the most excellent Pac-people at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS).

It also provides an opportunity to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of Australia's prominent Applied Probabilists, ACEMS Chief Investigator Professor Phil Pollett.

ACEMS Postdoc Workshop

When: 

20-22 March 2017

ACEMS/AMSI Workshop on Measuring Research Engagement and Impact in the Mathematical Sciences

When: 

Weds., 28 September 2016, 10 am - 4 pm

The aim of this workshop is to consider how the mathematical science research community should respond to the fact that its engagement and impact activities will be assessed differently by the government. For an enabling discipline such as mathematics, there are obvious challenges in this:  outside of applied mathematics and statistics, direct collaboration with industry is uncommon, and research commercialisation income is very low compared to other STEM disciplines.
