Mathematical Association of Tasmania
The Mathematical Association of Tasmania (MAT) was founded in 1960 by ML (Mac) Urquhart, a Mathematics lecturer at the University of Tasmania from 1947 to 1966. MAT’s logo includes a Euclidean geometry result widely known as Urquhart’s Theorem.
MAT is a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation supporting Tasmanian mathematics teachers and students from Kindergarten to Year 12. MAT aims to link teachers through association activities, our annual conference, and regular communication. We also provide opportunities for students to participate in mathematical events, such as our annual Maths Relays.
MAT is an affiliate of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT). We promote and support AAMT’s vision of ‘a society of mathematically capable citizens who understand and value mathematics and its contribution to the lives of all Australians’. We are also part of The Network of Education Associations in Tasmania (NEAT).
