Featured: 4/8/2013 Association of Teachers of Mathematics [Math]

Established in 1950, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics strives  to encourage the development of mathematics education that it is more closely related to the needs of the learner.

Based in the UK, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics has about 4000 members, most of whom are primary and secondary school teachers. Through the ATM all those concerned with mathematics education for all age ranges have the opportunity to come together.

The Association of Teachers of Mathematics aims to support the teaching and learning of mathematics by:

  • Encouraging increased understanding and enjoyment of mathematics.

  • Encouraging increased understanding of how people learn mathematics.

  • Encouraging the sharing and evaluation of teaching and learning strategies and practices.

  • Promoting the exploration of new ideas and possibilities.

  • Initiating and contributing to discussion of and developments in mathematics education at all levels.

The ATM produces policy statements and publishes responses to national and government initiatives. A number of ‘Working Groups’ examine particular areas of mathematics education to develop policy, resources, and action.

Membership in the Association of Teachers of Mathematics is open to students and teachers at nursery, infant, primary, secondary, and higher levels, numeracy consultants, and others. ATM speaks "for creativity, thought, and the enjoyment of the struggle in calculation, reasoning and discovery..."
