These collected papers are a record of the proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia entitled, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education." The conference is held in Fremantle, as was the previous conference a decade earlier. Keynote speakers are discussing issues that are emerging more sharply at the present time as the mathematics education community focuses on the education of Indigenous children, the scope of the mathematics curriculum and ways in which the content might be taught effectively, and the significant role of technologies in teaching and learning in the twenty-first century. Research papers are featured from mathematics educators from all states and territories of Australia, from colleagues in New Zealand, and from overseas--United Kingdom, Singapore, United States of America, India, Thailand, South Africa, and Indonesia. This set of proceedings includes abstracts and full papers for refereed research presentations, short communications of developing research, roundtable discussions, and symposia. Individual papers contain tables, footnotes, figures, references and appendices.
