Primary Mathematics AssociationWelcome to our website!

The Primary Mathematics Association (PMA) is a voluntary, professional organisation of people who are interested in the learning and teaching of mathematics at all levels within the primary school.

Our objectives are:

  • To provide opportunities for teachers to share and associate with others, searching for ways to provide optimum mathematics learning opportunities for children
  • To promote and support research into mathematics learning and teaching
  • Investigate and assist in the development of mathematics programmes, CWSA and CWSN
  • Raise community awareness of the need for children to have access to quality programmes which provide challenge and enjoyment
  • Promote and encourage an awareness of cultural influences and gender issues related to the learning and teaching of mathematics

Our major event is our yearly seminar day held at Waipuna Conference Centre in Auckland. The date for 2020 has been set for Saturday March 14th with the theme: 'To Infinity & Beyond!'. We are delighted to have Dr Lisa Darragh, as our keynote speaker. Her talk will centre around how a multifaceted approach to teaching and learning mathematics may lead to more positive learner identities.
