The Mathematical Association exists to support and promote confidence and enjoyment in mathematics for all, and especially young people. We do this through interacting with teachers and others, including young people themselves, via our publications and resources, workshops, conferences, professional development provision, nation-wide branches, and interactions with the media. We work to influence mathematics education policy in evidence-based ways that support the development of a mathematically-enabled confident and interested population.
“(The MA) is about personal professional development, affirmation, values – challenge too, but support to develop that deep thinking that nurtures your long-term growth and enablement, that enables you to go back refreshed and keeps you committed.”
“Provision is at a high level: it’s really high quality and builds your subject knowledge so it’s deeper.... There’s also the smaller things you pick up or learn, but the difference is in building for the long-term and the big picture. I take away things I can use straight away and that really hook the kids - but also strategies for their sustained learning and positive attitude to maths.”
