A principal objective for the MA is "to promote and support the professional development of teachers", and so its Professional Development Committee organises a range of PD events for teachers of mathematics. The MA is an NCETM accredited provider of mathematics CPD courses and events.
The MA offers a variety of support for primary teachers and primary schools. We have a dedicated primary journal, offering a mixture of theory and practice, as well as ideas for instant classroom use.
The MA, the first subject teaching association ever formed in England, has always focused on developing and supporting school mathematics.
The MA has a long-standing commitment to post-16 mathematics education, in schools, colleges, universities and other settings.
