Conference 2018

bcme mailchimp

In 2018 ATM will forgo its annual conference to help organise and facilitate the BCME9 conference.

For full details about the event visit the BCME website.

BCME is a celebration of mathematics education attracting delegates from every phase (early years through to university) and aspect (teaching through to research, policy and public engagement), as well as high profile plenary speakers.

Delegates can select from a fantastic selection of workshops, talks, demonstrations, discussion groups and research presentations to devise a highly personalised professional development and enrichment experience of exceptional quality. Some JMC organisations hold their AGMs at conference, and the Association of Teachers of Mathematics and the Mathematical Association bring their popular bookstalls.  There is a publishers’ exhibition that allows delegates to peruse the latest publications and resources.

I have been so impressed by BCME8. The mix of academics, teachers, trainers, advisers has been incredible. Having four days to see things from all these different perspectives has been such an enriching experience for me.

Session Sign-up

    BCME occurs once every four years and is the largest mathematics education conference which takes place in the UK; it attracts delegates from all sectors, bringing together teachers from early years to higher education, researchers, teacher educators, CPD providers, advisers, consultants, policy makers, examiners and professional and academic mathematicians. It replaces the annual conferences of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, the Mathematical Association and the National Association of Mathematics Advisors.

    The publishers’ exhibition represents a valued opportunity for delegates to review the wide range of publications and materials that are available to support and enrich the teaching and learning of mathematics.

    The exhibition will be centrally located within the conference. Teas/Coffee and Lunch will be served in the same room as exhibitors and, therefore, delegates will have plenty of time to view exhibitions between sessions and during lunch/tea breaks.  Lunch is included within the price for up to 2 people per stand.

    You are invited to exhibit your publications and materials on Wednesday 4 and/or Thursday 5 April, between 9am and 5pm. Please specify which day on the booking form and if you wish to take up the offer of the early bird price.

    For the cost of exhibiting and for insets into delegates’ wallets please see the booking form. Please ensure that you complete all sections of the reservation form carefully in order to avoid problems on the day of the exhibition.
