The Kavli Education Medal was awarded to Professor Alice Rogers, OBE, for her outstanding contributions to mathematics education, on January 15 2019 at the Royal Society.
It is with great sadness that The Mathematical Association has learnt of the death of Sir Michael Atiyah at the age of 89. Sir Michael served as MA President in 1981-82.
The Mathematical Association is delighted to announce that Hannah Fry, lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL, is to be the 2020-21 President.
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. If you haven’t yet explored our Primary Mathematics Challenge, don’t miss it. It provides a fabulous resource for extending able children and developing problem solving skills with pupils in Y5 and Y6.
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.
