Mathematics educators present Financial Education conference, Auckland

The Westpac Massey Fin-Ed Centre in collaboration with the Alliance of Financial Capability Academics is holding its first International conference in Auckland Westpac (Nov 28-29). On the 28th the conference opens with a keynote “Rethinking the possibilities for preparing a financially capable citizenry through school education“ by Dr Carly Sawatzki - Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia. Later in the day our own Dr Jodie Hunter will present “There are different ways of saving money: Pāsifika students’ funds of financial knowledge”.  If your school is involved or wanting to get more involved in financial literacy this would be a great conference to attend–one or two days.
