British Congress of Mathematics Education 9

  3 – 6 April 2018  

  University of Warwick  

 

The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom was incorporated as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation on 20 January 2017 by the Charity Commission for England and Wales. In pursuance of its objects, for the advancement of mathematics education, the JMC serves as a forum for discussion between its member bodies and for making representations to government and other bodies and responses to their enquiries, as well as running the British Congress of Mathematics Education and undertaking other initiatives. It is concerned with all aspects of mathematics education at all levels from primary education to higher education.

The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom is the successor body to the unincorporated Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom which was founded on 11 July 1962 and first met on 9 January 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’. Following the transfer of activities and assets to the new body, the unincorporated JMC was dissolved on 17 August 2017.

The JMC is a member of the Council for Subject Associations.

For more information, please contact the Secretary.
