Tue, 10 Jan 2012 04:57:09 +0000http://austmaths.wordpress.com/?p=179#comment-3819I would like to see qualified maths tutors willing to help kids of all school grade levels in every community of more than 15,000 in Australia within four years – to teach kids the joys of mathematics, and to truly make Australia the clever country.

I am setting up an organisation with precisely these aims. If you would like more details, please email me at MathsTuitionAustralia@gmail.com

Comment on Mathematics at Flinders by John
https://austmaths.wordpress.com/2008/06/17/mathematics-at-flinders/#comment-3225
Thu, 08 Dec 2011 21:35:14 +0000http://austmaths.wordpress.com/?p=14#comment-3225Back in 2008, I posted a contribution to this blog stating that we were in the process of building mathematics at Flinders. With the encouragement of many, including Terry, this process has come a long way since then. In particular, the University has invested in more staff, including our recently appointed Chair in Mathematics, Jerzy Filar, a new Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences award (to be offered from 2013) and the establishment of the Flinders Mathematical Sciences Laboratory. Further details can be found at http://www.flinders.edu.au/science_engineering/csem/courses/maths/ and http://www.flinders.edu.au/science_engineering/csem/research/centres/fmsl.cfm.
