Madeline Beveridge will be taking over the reigns of EduTweetOz on the evening of Sunday, January 26, following an inspiring week from primary principal, Jason Borton.


She’s been keeping a blog, Mathitude for the last 6 months which is always very thoughtful and interesting, and she has the ability to explain some pretty complex issues in clear terms.

About madelinebevs

Mathematics and religion teacher and researcher. Runner. Home-renovation enthusiast. PhD Candidate. I'm excited by education. Having taught high-school mathematics for several years I am currently studying a Master of Education (Honours) in mathematics education, with the aim to ‘upgrade’ to a PhD later this year. My research is addressing how the constructivist epistemology (more specifically explicit instruction in metacognitive and self-reflective strategies) influences students’ affective domain. Mathematics education and research excites me greatly. I’m thrilled that I have the opportunity to write and work in this area. This blog will be (mostly) a collection of opinion pieces published several times a week on contemporary issues in mathematics education, with an Australian focus. More often than not topics will be generated from recent news headlines.
