Kaye Stacey is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Melbourne, having held the foundation chair there for 20 years. She has worked as an education researcher, a primary and secondary teacher educator, supervisor of graduate research and as an adviser to governments. She has written many practically-oriented books, electronic resources and articles for teachers as well as producing an important set of research articles. Professor Stacey’s research interests centre on mathematical thinking and problem solving and the mathematics curriculum, particularly the challenges which are faced in adapting to the new technological environment. Her research work is renowned for its high engagement with schools. Innovative design of curriculum materials to promote deeper mathematical thinking and capitalise on new technologies is central to both her research and curriculum work. Her doctoral thesis from the University of Oxford, UK, is in number theory. She was the Chair of the Mathematics Expert Group for the OECD’s 2012 PISA survey. Kaye Stacey was awarded a Centenary Medal from the Australian government for outstanding services to mathematical education and a MERGA Career Research Medal.

Sheila Evans is a member of the Mathematics Assessment Project team in the Centre for Research in Mathematical Education at the University of Nottingham. For the last four years she has worked designing, observing, teaching, revising and providing professional development for the project's Formative Assessment Lessons. She is currently working on a doctorate using teaching resources that have been shaped by this project. Before that, she taught for fifteen years in secondary schools in the UK and Africa, and wrote a textbook Access to Maths aimed at students without traditional qualifications who wished to study at University.

Dor Abrahamson (PhD, Learning Sciences, Northwestern University) is Associate Professor in the Education in Mathematics, Science, and Technology program , part of the Cognition and Development area in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley. Dor directs the Embodied Design Research Laboratory where they conduct design research on mathematical cognition and instruction. The lab’s work is inspired by constructivist/enactivist and sociocultural theory.

At the core of Abrahamson's practice are cognitive domain re-analyses of foundational mathematical content with an eye on creating learning materials and activities. This research program also informs emerging frameworks guiding the design of learning materials and activities. Abrahamson has worked mostly on the concepts of proportion probability, and algebra, and his artifacts include both traditional media, such as a tubful of marbles, and recent technologies, such as embodied-interaction via remote-sensors or agent-based simulations of stochastic phenomena from a complexity perspective.

Frans van Galen is a senior curriculum developer at the Freudenthal institute. He has a wide range of expertise in the area of mathematics education and the use of computers. He has been author of an RME textbook series for Dutch primary schools, and was involved in the development of the textbook series for the American Middle School "Mathematics in Contexts". He is a key designer for many of the Institute's educational applets and a developer of interactive content for educational publishers.

Max Stephens is a senior research fellow in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne, Australia, with long-standing interests in curriculum and assessment at international, national and state level. In 2015, along with Kaye Stacey, he prepared advice to the Australian Academy of Science on priorities for school mathematics. In 2012, he was one of the co-authors of “High-stakes Examinations to Support Policy Design, development and implementation” (Education Designer, 2012). Major projects for the Australian Government include being a reviewer of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, and providing an Australian perspective on international assessments in Mathematics, such as PISA and TIMSS. Prior to joining Melbourne University, Max worked at the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority where he was responsible for State-wide curriculum and assessment in Mathematics (K-12). He has strong international interests in curriculum development, notably in China, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand.

Daniel Pead is a Senior Research Fellow in the University of Nottingham, and is Technical Director of the Shell Centre and MARS teams. His 2010 PhD considered the design challenges involved in the computer-based assessment of mathematics. He led the original design of the computer-based problem-solving materials for the World Class Tests/Arena project, and contributed to the design and development of professional development materials and interactive learning applets for the Bowland Maths initiative and is part of the team producing the Math Assessment Project formative and summative assessment materials. He also created the current websites for Bowland Maths, the Math Assessment Project, ISDDE and Educational Designer.
