About us

PARABOLA incorporating FUNCTION is published by the Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) in association with the School of Mathematics & Statistics, University of New South Wales. AMT is a not-for-profit organisation that administers mathematical enrichment activities for Australian and international students and publishes materials on mathematical enrichment. Its trustee is the University of Canberra and its Board comprises representation from the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers, as well as representatives from academia and the corporate sector. For a brief history of PARABOLA see Vol 41 No 1 Editorial and view the first issue of Parabola published in July 1964.

The Parabola Online project was initiated by a grant from the U-Committee of the University of New South Wales. Parabola Online includes an archive of Parabola issues (currently under deployment) and also the development of other online Mathematical resources. The Parabola-Online team wish to thank the U-Committee for their generous support of the project.
