We really enjoyed listening and learning from Dr Christopher Matthews on ABC’s RN this morning. Chris is a well-respected expert in maths and numeracy, and one of the few Aboriginal people with a PhD in applied mathematics. Chris has a wealth of experience in matters that count! We have had the good fortune of working with Chris on his Make It Count project a few years back, which came out of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Inc. Congratulations Chris. You do us proud. If you’re interested in learning from one of the best, then click here.
