along the longwall but not in the area of the of the theft and today if it's and it was a be useful that we heads excuse my voice I've been talking too much is to be useful we have the mapping the last session because you could see how far it had to travel today I'm here to speak about 2 things so all speak a little bit about mathematics average international a new group that we've just got going and I'll speak a little bit about this tournament Mathematical Sciences institution and what we've been doing so that you can see 1 example of that outrage the young you started with a conversation over a bottle of red wine which is hello good conversations about mathematics should stop and which only to connect from my text in Canada he came to australia and we young we were talking about the work that we were doing talking the works that my taxes been doing and we were aware of lots of other work that was going on around the world and we thought we would be great if we got all of these people together the 2 through model that we got lots of people together at the Banking Commission Research Station which you know very well How do you know him last year the we had 21 people attending so we got a half session a week-long half session of 10th and on we had a couple people coming including centric and me and Andreas became numbers got which was very exciting we have faced like workshops where we just took some time to show the materials and share that the work that we've been doing on but what was most exciting about it was that we had people from all of mathematics we had moviemakers we have mathematicians we have mathematics teachers and teacher educators and they took us through their journey in explaining mathematics to the public and their reasons for doing it of this is this is the crowd this is the group and John after wake think now we have established that what we need to do is more of the science and more sharing of of the ideas that we we gathered together and the user of good everybody from the field instituted a solid films Chris Chris barred from having 100 m from BBC and and so on so it was it was a week-long conversation about the reasons we do outreach and what was his reasons
well not necessary forgot the Federalist
this that is even more important that's something that's not touched off or anything that was actually the mounds it was actually minus 28 degrees infinite might understand that's not something that we experience very often of what we
learned we learn that sharing resources builds capacity for each of those people in that group and what I mean by that was we we could take a poster that somebody had designed translated into another language keep almost all the same content and it was something that was changed and useful to the person in that context and we also found that the issues a similar all over the world that we have under participation of women that we have some students to say I don't like mathematics this region is that earlier on and of the good solutions can
from having very open very broad conversations about it we also discovered that involving the media and making good use of the media which is why was part of the media and communications workshop here was how we got the message out to the public but it was also how we got a message out to funding partners and funding partners when they hear about something you don't reputation in the media a much more interested in
what you've you've got to say so sharing the fund-raising strategies helped all of us and even though we said we tend to be competing in the same very small pool of of philanthropy for mathematics the for the future so we have an ion mass society I miss Notices article which which is accepted in much amateur exactly when that's to be published yet and the be another meeting more people and probably some of you and we intend to grow the group and and eventually set up a website a wiki page to share some of the which we've been doing of what we really conscious obvious that there's lots of good work already going on so win together some of that together at the wiki patients being developed here 10 runs in and that groups on is an obvious connection and others to duplicate in that so that would be fun to see how both groups work together and get that going on and
maybe the joint development resources but that is very differently down the track we're very much an idea or a group that was conceived in Australia 3 years ago I I was born in bonds last year and now just a very very young toddler learning to walk I think we're we're just getting started
the next part of what I want to show you is so is 1 of those average project so it is still Mathematical Sciences Institute of being on then after 12 years I manage the schools division and we work across programs
from 5 years of age students at 5 years of age he's just started school to after that will and the studio on the right is my 15 year old daughter who was the father of 1 of my children in my talk politics is a little more interesting to look at me and partly because that's why we're here that's what we're doing is for the future and handling shall I had a name to the hand on the mathematician of course ends on dissonance palindromic and and she knows that she's sick of hearing about it but
thus the pit was 0 of whom I would assume that the new names cannot did I palindromic right AC is the and also strands shorten everything on entities the collaborative enterprises of all of the work that's going on hamster and we communicate 1 across mathematics
departments the Bureau of Statistics Bureau of Meteorology the Reserve Bank of Australia the teachers associations so good connections right across the mathematics mathematics education industry and business on ends up pretty much the ends of any mass organizations anywhere in the world so we wanna do what we do better than we get more people doing it and that's really kind of fond of my work on work in schools
division but we also recession higher-education division which 1 summer schools and winter schools and reinventing 10 which is based on the my text model on to get more industry partners understanding how mathematics can help the business as strong as had a huge tradition of intention on and we're put to grow that we're about to receive a for a very very very well behaved and you grant from that now just recently agreed to strengthen government I will surround summer schools winter
schools bioinformatics short courses and we were on the managing hot from exoplanets in 2030
instead reduces the textbooks which was why I came to the institute 12 years ago and have been highly successful with 4 % of administering market which in textbooks in mathematics model is very good I have done average and I can change that number now done aperture thousand schools we actually did a better calculation that dada and dumb and its little the schools and we also consulted with strand curriculum Estrella is a population of 23 million spread across the country the size of the United States of America so we're very sparsely populated around the cost of have states and territories and off until 2 thousand and 14 we each had a different curriculum so that's only just come together in the 1 character in the last few years I was 1 of the writers for that allergy and is based on an advocacy and government relations we type on the need for more mathematicians the need for hire unqualified best teachers and so on to governmental industry and tell them what's important and we also produce the
most beautiful and media and communications materials the same of got lots of it with me and only out the tables for people to take but some in I think about it if you away really what we're really interested in is showing people
how we can tie just 1 get 1 poster we're interested in showing people how mathematics fits in their lives it's important and what's so beautifully might recognize him segments designer man on the connection to him remunerative moment is quite obvious that we produce materials can go into schools and attracts students towards perhaps I would sort of have this websites sort and these were produced in 2 thousand and 10 and and still and most popular posted via a series of books and copies of the video if you like of y times by 1 person who determines take
earlier of the with the problems and reason we have to produce all of this of the material and keeping on people's doors and keep pushing a little wheelbarrow up a little hill by ourselves is that with a shortage of mathematically capable professionals at teachers aren't all qualified 40 % of Estonian clusterings are have a teacher in front of them who is not qualified to teach mathematics that that come from an area which is very common around world and on and we need more and we do believe that having women participate in mathematics marker some way to addressing these so these are a daughter up to
2014 This is the most other than the 3 Mathematics subjects that he told which is the final year of school you can say that are all the numbers are increasing for the elementary mathematics subject which is the base subject with no calculus and but for the 2 calculus subjects were a very steady decline in the participation rates are quite low the the more worrying trend is that what we've got 12 % of boys in the cohort taking advance the mathematics of only got 6 % of girls and we'd like to change that we had some success so my 1st little grants was the 75 thousand dollars Frerichs 2nd 0 . pay as very excited about that and we're growing we're getting better at doing so we do lots of work in schools we sit with the teachers we help them with their planning we've got modules for content knowledge development and we've got the Koreas material from from helping students understand where the Koreans could go with it but what happened just skip which
partnerships with Boeing which just been very successful in Korea's events in noun
producing some more videos which can see on a
website and the point of all of the things that from those little things big things have grown so
now I have traveled to Silicon Valley it's the standard in action in all of
these amazing amazing places on August Hewlett-Packard enterprise unmet Meg Whitman I met Alan Alan blue the founder linking aren't we took part in demonstrations that GA using screens the size of the screen interactively of which to the
technologies we looked at the National Football League statistics dada in real time being gathered analyzed and fed back to the Tang so
we have lots of it we instead of all of these things that
for strand is actually quite a bit of because
we had the bad state at the time
now you put the progress choose masses money baby when you projects under my beautiful go change is 1 of the students in 1 of our schools and the same of that program is am more than a number of the programs designed to get more girls into mathematics
and it's BHP Billiton which is a mining company funded to the tune of 22 million dollars it's probably the biggest scrap assert has seen for such a program in schools error we went was still looking at this 1
undergrads please also funded that is 20 i million to get more indigenous students to science technology engineering and mathematics but we believe that this is the biggest for mathematics aligned
choose methods aimed at getting more girls that's the short version we're doing this across 4
components the reason for doing it is increasingly we're looking at needing more in skills including mathematics and we believe we come from a
premise that there is no in your psychological difference between men and women but there's no reason why we can't participate fully and but there as a strategic in and political and societal reasons why the participation long this is a fantastic book if you're looking for a gender I attended challenge to yourself if you like but I read it found myself even I had some advice conceptions of some of those things that the message in my life underlying biases was was still very very strong despite the work that I do and passion had for it but it's a very good book on so these
are used to grow the understanding of the importance of mathematics in the minds of the public I think part of the problem is that our parents and the public don't always see how mathematics is going to be useful have a picture of mathematicians which is not a picture I say in front of me right now I see a very varied even exciting and pressure group of people and I don't think the public always get to see that that's part of my message right on a storyteller so I take the story of packaging is story that better cakes and all all take every session of being timing taking copious notes something to those back to my team at the end of each day and we use those stories to work with to
yeah so why math than girls but we know that 30 % of undergraduates and postgraduates enrollments in mathematics and astronomy is where it's about half size gives graphic on
agenda report show that there are definite triggers that we can latest that we can pull on
operation you the graph we want students to understand that women in industry doesn't just mean women in teaching mathematics and we want to see this very clearly courage trajectories and also to understand that some people don't go directly into mathematics and like often do side engineering degree 1st and then find mathematics is the true love but the program has 4 components was still working in schools and an average capacity a massive careers awareness campaign student teacher awards our highest price the teacher waters is a 20 thousand dollar prize for the teachers who successfully mental goes into mathematics 10 thousand the school and 10 thousand the teacher to improve and that's we've got we expected or 10 nominees are 1st year on the words of being on the end of this month and Jung would receive 32 to the student awards we expected 50 or 60 students videos explaining the beauty of mathematics we say deficits 100 and so now when many trying to watch all the years so that we can judge them but the graph and 1 women's mentoring network and that's designed to introduce students about 15 to 16 years of age when they're making subject choices to undergraduate students and women in industry so that they can actually meet people on who's doing the work that I might end up to me and hopefully some so that's the 4 components that the website and
that's the thank you and do amazing work and and that the and the new england Winston the the the this the Hey thank you so much for the representation I was wondering if your group is also working with professors at higher education or view solely at the Cape 12 other not we're working right across the we have been researching Higher Education Division and C is that and that the mass at each international is the same we work right across from from very tiny children through the price doctrine beyond with but a lot of working of research institutes and sees not itself a research institute at the moment but we're establishing a research center toward the end of this year in parallel with a new funding arrangements so we're looking at becoming self-sufficient financially if you like in and having
flattery flat become direct Institute and that'll enable us to do a lot more but the summer schools or winter schools or very high-level mathematicians working the firm on his students right through to to mathematicians working industry and academia and I think I was thinking 1 level higher up is that someone working with the professor how they teach North sized by on with with got a connection to the sound a lot of the universe is a mystery now have brought Xin qualifications for our academics who a teaching
mathematics or other subjects in sciences at the university and 1 on its voluntary at the moment not mandating that if you wish to take senior level mathematics in university have to do this courses on but there are some that immediately doing inquiry approach and and and taking a very different on the very different view of how the traditional lecture what got the in but many more questions of the OK and thanks for the great presentation uh perhaps more common that maybe we like to react on the ponder which you mentioned no known uh in new rule psychological difference between boys and girls about ABT of
mathematics we're just comment is that they be doing mathematics is such a wall 8 concept that anything could be there like for instance with deviation is part of the CBD to focus for always can be part of the so what divert and sick and they they impression is that it's always a bit dangerous when when users biological arguments to justify for so shrewd equal things imagine that they want experiement find some difference between boys and girls on the 1 hand this arguement Beecham uh might collapse on the other hand you might say more people might say that's good news because it means that putting the diversity as the real task which used to set different kinds of reactions from 2 different problems which is what we will do ultimately so I'm a bit perplexed in front of the argument move along the use psychological or the you
know mechanism but I think I may migrate to migrate and I think society and expectations and ends on history has has had a lot of impact on how we turned down and and how we react how women and men react to different situations on not saying that that's that does exist but what I use when I stated at 15 year old girl has the same age as my daughter I want to go to tell her that there is no difference between you and the boys sitting next to you and you should want to this it is a fully and we know that the student results tell us that it goes do equally as well as boys when I participate it's just that they not participate the same level and we think that's the lots of different reasons we know that students get very poor advice for example in high school during subject selection time so they they they get the question do you wanna be an engineer or not I don't wanna be an engineer that I know what an ingenue does by the way they think initially builds a bridge but they say not I don't wanna be an engineer and so the careers advisor is almost always a non-mathematician on science teacher says you don't need mathematics we have issue prerequisites in Australia where they are an advanced calculus based mathematics is not a prerequisite for science degree the government opened it up to get more students into the university and that's part of the problem as well but we also do have this underlying um underlying societal expectation that goes down to mathematics only time change at a bit sigh but I understand and I agree with all of what saying then maybe differences in the diversity is a good thing but for that 15 year old girl I want her to understand is no difference between the 2 of you and that to I that to your uh comment uh I think you're OK it's important to talk to the girls but the Quartier ball or maybe even more to talk to the but the values of the people in charge of uh advising the orientation for the queue then varies a lot of false lies that reflects the across many countries in the skeptical we unfortunately but I like the TEM fossilize reflexes of and I grade I think 10 we've lands but we think I'm for you now I'm and we've line it's equally important to talk to the boys to the 15 all boys and and so that in the classroom environment the girls a safe and comfortable and capable and and ready to show what they can Jerry I'm NO not is differences in in in the sexes that some
basically important the boys understands as well so yeah I agree that a lot for songs yeah at any other questions the for the Mac as I have a question which is how can we make sure we know about your next meeting when you do the next thing I like about it but I think at this stage would be to ask to send me an e-mail of copepods with me on and all I due to a list we don't even work was so young and so a new we don't even have a newsletter yet there's no website were nothing to sort of sitting at our wedding exceeding September unbiased guy but that for now all seem to myself or to die what he was hoping to Bahia but to family circumstances couldn't come choose coming from Denver answer sanitizer diorama self would buy from the executive in my and and and which escape a list and keep people updated and and then when we do have a website a week you connect to the the wiki from him like a yeah thanks and any more questions
would the so there there the goal of this mathematical virtually intonational is going to be a little data action for the public so people do people just from of people in the next edition that such log log I want to coordinate people through another agency that is going to a little to the final we having that that finance so that's how young we aren't yet but in the Bible and the meaning in the pipeline I don't know I don't knows the answer to the question so far we've gotten together we share the resources I would like to get more people to give the shared resources but beyond that we haven't made any decisions and it's not just english speaking and we had people from all over the world we wanna expand on that we did invite um 2 speakers to people to join as advanced from Asia and they were able to come have connections to South America to Mexico results hoping to get people from that that didn't happen but we hope to happens next time it was it's it's non-banking instead of growing as it as it gets older and and start to grow it but we don't really know what will hate at this stage thank you will let's thank the speaker again from

Abstract In November 2015, a group of 18 mathematics outreach specialists converged at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS) in Alberta, Canada, for an international math outreach workshop. The participants included academic faculty from both local and world-renowned institutes and universities, graduate students, program directors, journalists, and filmmakers. Coming from Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Throughout the workshop, participants discussed how sharing ideas could benefit the global outreach paradigm. They reached agreement on the need to develop an international networking infrastructure for outreach, and explored both the possibilities of expanding existing activities and creating new ones. The result was Mathematics Outreach International (MOI), a new international initiative to support the expansion and enrichment of outreach activities worldwide, especially those aimed at developing countries and traditionally under-represented groups. MOI will get advice from an international advisory board made up of prominent outreach leaders, launch a website containing resources and links to organizations, groups, and individuals coordinating national and international outreach activities, and contact the International Mathematical Union (IMU) to explore the possibility of becoming an IMU committee. In addition, MOI will organize workshops and conferences, and will propose them as satellite activities of international meetings of mathematical associations. MOI may also undertake other activities, such as the administration of an International Mathematics Outreach blog, a newsletter, or soliciting guidance from its advisory board on how to encourage policy
