About Us

The Wellington Mathematics Association's aim is to make maths fun and to promote its understanding through good teaching.  We work with primary and secondary schools in the Wellington region to support teachers and provide professional development.  We also have connections with tertiary institutions and industry and business enterprises where maths is used and promoted.

Membership is offered to schools and individuals and needs to be renewed (by payment) each year.  A school membership means any staff member from that school is a member.  Schools are invoiced annually (if you haven't received an invoice, please contact the treasurer).

WMA has grants available to individual members only.  These are to attend conferences, present papers or prepare resources.  Applications are assessed by the committee on an ad-hoc basis as they come in and will be accepted on individual merit and subject to availability of funds at the time.  See WMA grants policy here.
