About Rich Learning Intensive
The program is underpinned by Maths Pathway’s belief in making evidence-based practices in teaching and learning accessible, while supporting teachers to make long-term and sustainable change.
'Rich Learning Intensive' is an invaluable PD program that will:
- equip you to make rich learning part of your regular classroom practice
- provide you with rich learning tasks that you experience and can use with all students
- enable you to identify what rich learning tasks are (and aren't) and how they fit into a balanced maths program
- have you engaging with like-minded people
Overview of the day
During this one-day intensive, we will look at why rich learning is important, what it is (and what it isn't), and how rich learning fits into a balanced maths program. Attendees will also experience several rich learning tasks throughout they day, which can then be taken back to the classroom.

Why do Rich Learning?
Head of Learning/President
Maths Pathway/ Mathematical Association of Victoria, Vic
As head of learning at Australian-founded social enterprise Maths Pathway and the current president of the Mathematical Association of Victoria, Michaela Epstein’s work revolves around the belief that students need to be involved in meaningful and thought-provoking mathematics, in which a growth mindset is an essential ingredient for success. Underpinning this is the idea that we are all ‘maths people’.
Michaela tirelessly advocates for the advancement of mathematics in Australian schools. She has taught and coached teachers in schools in rural Victoria and in Melbourne, where she introduced and led programs aimed at supporting and extending students in mathematics. In 2014, Epstein was recognised at the ACER Excellence in Professional Practice Conference with an award for her work with a numeracy intervention program.
Michaela’s expertise in mathematics education also extends to curriculum policy and development. She recently completed Masters-level research at The University of Melbourne with the intent of framing the new Victorian curriculum for mathematics. In her current roles, Epstein works closely with teachers and other members of the community to facilitate the sharing of ideas and to ensure that research and data is used thoughtfully so that all students can succeed in mathematics.
Michaela has developed the Maths Pathway rich learning program and has facilitated numerous rich learning PD sessions. She is passionate for students to see the connections across what they are learning, and to see them open to the curiosity and ownership of mathematical ideas.
Who should attend?
Maths teachers and maths school teams who want to reflect on and further develop their mathematics practice. Individual teachers may register, however schools are strongly encouraged to send a group of teachers who can collaborate and support one another during and beyond the program.
You will be provided with all program materials and have access to the tools and resources to give you immediate impact with your students. You will also be emailed a certificate of learning for 6.5 Teacher Identified hours.
