The Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers is the main representative organisation of mathematics teachers in Australia. Membership is via affiliated state organisations. The AAMT conducts a number of activities including Reach for the stars, an activity for students, as well as submissions to government bodies and reports on issues relevant to mathematics teaching.
The AAMT is a federation of 8 affiliated associations of teachers of mathematics, one from each Australian State and Territory:
The AAMT is governed by a council made up of a representatives from each of these associations, as well as an elected President, Treasurer, and either a President Elect or an Immediate Past President.
The day-to-day affairs of the association are managed by an office staff based primarily in Adelaide, South Australia.
AAMT does not direct membership; members join their local affiliated association and are then automatically a member of AAMT. AAMT has approximately 4000 individual and institutional members.

The AAMT publishes three journals:
- Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom (APMC) - primary school mathematics education.
- The Australian Mathematics Teacher (AMT) - secondary school mathematics up to age 16
- Australian Senior Mathematics Journal (ASMJ) - senior secondary (Years 11 and 12) and early tertiary mathematics.
