It may seem rather trivial to many that I submitted my first abstract to present at a conference, but yesterday I sent my first. My supervisors were very helpful in making big changes to aid its appeal, and I’m a little more confident of being accepted.
Being accepted means that not only will my abstract be published in the conference proceedings, but that I would also be presenting a talk to mathematics education practitioners in a national conference. This is naturally daunting but part-and-parcel of this line of work. It’s quite exciting!
