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.
