Oceania MathsJam Gathering 2019

The inaugural Oceania MathsJam Gathering will be a get-together for like-minded maths enthusiasts to discuss interests, share maths puzzles, games, insights, ideas, network and generally have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. The event is a spin-off of the UK MathsJam Gathering, on our side of the world.

Attendees are invited to give an informal 5 minute talk about an area of interest. These will be given in scheduled blocks over the weekend, interspersed with activities, and opportunities to share (maths, crafts, hobbies, games, curios areas of interest) in a more social setting.
