The Art of Mathematics

Prof Marcus du Sautoy gave this lecture in Wellington as part of the Royal Society Distinguished speaker series in December 2014.

The Wellington Mathematics Association was formed in 1986 with the purpose of promoting the study of mathematics in education.

Over recent years the WMA has been focused around secondary schools.  We are currently widening this focus to include primary schools and tertiary institutes.  It is also hoped that WMA can involve industry partners and practitioners to cover the full gambit of maths.

We aim to make maths fun and to enable both educators and students to achieve their full potential.
