Oceania MathsJam Gathering
October 7th - 9th, 2022 | Spencer Park, Christchurch, NZ
Oceania MathsJam Gathering (OMG for short) is an annual weekend 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. We welcome all abilities and backgrounds, regular MathsJam attendees, teachers, recreational puzzlers, and professionals. In short, anyone who enjoys maths! It’s also a good professional development opportunity for teachers.
At the gathering, attendees are invited to give an informal 5 minute talk about an area of interest. These are 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. The gathering also features a keynote talk. Check out the programme for this year's, or see our archives from previous years to get an idea of what we get up to.
This MathsJam annual gathering is held in Oceania, and is the closest annual gathering for New Zealanders, Australians and most others in the Southern Hemisphere. MathsJam annual gathering aka “Big MathsJam” is also held in the UK, in November.
