Penelope Serow is Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of New England, Australia. She has worked on various development projects in Pacific Island contexts. She is actively involved in research in the areas of primary, secondary and pre-service mathematics education. Areas of research include assessment for learning practices, making the most of available tools in the mathematics classroom to actively engage students, and providing community-focused opportunities for teacher education in remote locations. Rosemary Callingham is a mathematics educator at the University of Tasmania. She has an extensive background in mathematics education in Australia, at school, system and tertiary levels, including mathematics curriculum development and implementation, large-scale testing, and pre-service teacher education. Her specific research interests include teachers' pedagogical content knowledge, statistical literacy, mental computation, and assessment of mathematics and numeracy. Tracey Muir is an Associate Professor in Mathematics Education at the University of Tasmania. Her teaching expertise has been recognised through a number of Teaching Merit Certificates, a VC Team Award for Teaching Excellence, an OLT Team award for Teaching Excellence and a VC Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning. She is an Executive Member of the Mathematics Association of Tasmania, a previous editor of Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom (APMC), and a past Vice President (Development) of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia. Her research interests include effective teaching of numeracy, student engagement, flipped learning and teacher knowledge. She regularly conducts professional leaning for teachers and has delivered workshops, presentations and keynote addresses at national and international conferences.
