We heartily congratulate Bruce Ferrington on receiving the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute's teaching excellence award for the ACT. The awards honour teachers who innovate, mentor students and support colleagues. 

As reported in the Canberra Times article by Sherryn Groch, Bruce’s Authentic Inquiry Maths blog is read by teachers from more than 170 countries. This year, he was also awarded a $5,000 grant from the ACT Government to design a series of maths programs for early childhood educators to take outdoors. The project will be available to all Canberra pre-schools by the end of 2018. 

"Set the expectation that everyone will find their own solution, all kids are on their own journeys," he says.
