Logo marque of The Joint Mathematical Council of the United Kingdom

The JMC is a council of participating and observing bodies which first met in 1963 to promote communication between the bodies and to promote mathematics and the improvement of the teaching of mathematics at all levels. It serves as a forum for discussion between societies and for making representations to government and other bodies and responses to their enquiries. It meets three times each year to enable updating, responses to issues and discussion between the bodies. The JMC also sets up working parties and groups to examine topics further as required.

MMSA

Meeting of Mathematics Subject Associations Special Interest Group

Honorary Secretary
John Barton

MMSA is a meeting, held three times a year of the Association of Mathematics Education Teachers, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, The Mathematical Association, the National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges and the National Association of Mathematics Advisors, with representatives of the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education and the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics also attend. On 9 June 2017, MMSA became a Special Interest Group of the JMC.This committee organises and allocated bursaries for those attending the International Congress of Mathematics Education.

ICME  

International Congresses of Mathematics Education Bursaries Committee

Chair

This committee organises and allocated bursaries for those attending the International Congress of Mathematics Education. The next ICME is ICME-14 which was due to be held in Shanghai from 12 to 19 July 2020. Having been cancelled as a result of the pandemic, ICME-14 has been rescheduled for 2021 as a a hybrid meeting involving a mix of face-to-face and online events.

BCME

British Congresses of Mathematics Education Committee

A working party drawn from among the Trustees of the JMC is conducting a review of BCME with a view to bringing forward proposals as to its future. While the review is being conducted, the BCME Committee is in abeyance.

BCME is a joint conference organised by the JMC Participating Bodies. It is normally held every four years between ICME (International Congress on Mathematical Education) conferences. BCME provides an opportunity to promote mathematics and the improvement of the teaching of mathematics at all levels. The following BCME conferences have been held:

BCME1 – University of Loughborough – 1991

BCME2 – University of Loughborough – 1993

BCME3 – Manchester Metropolitan University – 1995

BCME4 – Nene College Northampton – 1999

BCME5 – University of Keele – 2001

BCME6 – University of Warwick – 2005

BCME7 – University of Manchester – 2010

BCME8 – University of Nottingham – 2014
