ATSIMA is a recently formed, non-profit member based group representing organisations, communities, institutes and individuals across Australia. We aim to inspire, promote and support improved mathematics outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
ATSIMA is led by Dr Chris Matthews, a Noonuccal man from Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island), Quandamooka First Nation (Moreton Bay) in Queensland. Chris completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2003.
ATSIMA is pleased to announce our national conference in July bringing together a collaboration of leaders, educators and stakeholders from Community, education, research, and business sectors around Australia to the traditional lands of theWurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. Go to the conference page for more details about how you can be involved or register now.
ATSIMA has a number of potential initiatives - community-based, some STEM related, others about developing leaders in Indigenous education and maths education. Interested? Consider partnering with us or becoming an ATSIMA member to make them a reality.
