The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom was formed in 1963 to: 'provide co-ordination between the Constituent Societies and generally to promote the advancement of mathematics and the improvement of the teaching of mathematics’. In pursuance of this, the JMC serves as a forum for discussion between societies and for making representations to government and other bodies and responses to their enquiries. It is concerned with all aspects of mathematics at all levels from primary to higher education.
The JMC is a member of the Council for Subject Associations.
The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom was incorporated as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation by the Charity Commission for England and Wales on 20 January 2017 with Registered Charity Number 1171223. The Registered Office of the CIO is De Morgan House, 57-58 Russell Square, London, WC1B 4HS. The Constitution of the CIO can be found here. The trustees of the CIO are Sally Barton, Paul Glaister (Chair), Paul Harris (Treasurer), Sue Pope, Hilary Povey and Peter Thomas (Secretary). Communications should be addressed to the Secretary. For the time being, the unincorporated Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom will continue to exist while activities and assets are transferred from the old body to the new one.
If you are looking for professional development in the teaching of mathematics then you may find useful: A guide to STEM continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for teachers which is published by the National College for Teaching and Leadership [for England].
