Message from the MA

We would like to take this opportunity to update you with our working practices in this unprecedented time

Annual Conference 2020

Last week it was with great sadness that we reported we were unable to go ahead with the Annual Conference this year.

All delegates are entitled to 100% refund and we are working to process these as quickly as possible.  Some delegates have very generously donated their conference fee to the MA.  Thank you so much.

Save The Date!

Looking ahead, 2021 will be the MA’s 150th Anniversary and we aim to make this a real celebration of mathematics and mathematics teaching. 

Our annual conference promises to be a very special event in this momentous year for the association, we will be in Stratford upon Avon on 8 – 10 April 2021 and we hope you will join us and our President Dr Hannah Fry, at this very special event.

Resources available online

The MA team are working hard to bring you more online resources  that can be used to keep the brain cells ticking!

There are already many resources available on the MA website such as SymmetryPlus and SYMminimetryplus Mathematical Pie and of course our e-journal Equals

Don’t forget the Primary Mathematics Challenge have a great selection of past papers available to everyone! as does the First Mathematics Challenge

Why not make these a part of your home schooling?

It is our intention to update these resources, and our website regularly to keep you informed during this difficult time.

Finally, we would like to send you all our very best wishes.  Take care of yourselves, take care of each other and stay safe.
