Catherine Attard

Associate Professor, Mathematics Education, Western Sydney University

I am an Associate professor in mathematics education, specialising in mathematics pedagogy for pre-service and practicing primary teachers. My PhD focussed on the influences on student engagement with mathematics during the middle years of schooling. I also conduct research in the areas of technology and mathematics and consumer and financial literacy. I have won multiple teaching awards, including a prestigious Australian Award for University Teaching (AAUT) Teaching Excellence Award in 2016 in recognition of my work in the field of mathematics education. I also write the successful mathematics blog, engagingmaths.co.
