Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education: Advice on 3-19 mathematics education policy

The Royal Society Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) develops advice on mathematics education policy. ACME was set up in 2002 by the Royal Society and the Joint Mathematical Council of the UK (JMC) and backed by mathematics organisations.

ACME's advice is underpinned by evidence-informed analysis and harnesses and reflects the expertise of the mathematics community.

Information about ACME members can be found on the Royal Society's website. You can find more information about ACME's focus areas on the new  mathematics education page or in a blog post from the current ACME Chair, Professor Frank Kelly FRS.
