Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME)

What is ACME?

Intro The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) is an independent committee that utilises its expertise to develop advice that it uses to influence mathematics education policy. ACME undertakes evidence-informed analysis, harnessing and reflecting the expertise of the mathematics community.

ACME's Maths Snapshots

The first paper in ACME's Maths Snapshots series ACME's blueprint for mathematics education. The blueprint draws together principles on mathematics education developed by ACME since 2002.

ACME has published Maths Snapshots on the curriculum, teachers of mathematics, mathematics for all to 18, international comparisons and mathematics education policy.

In the papers, we use three main questions to frame our overview of the landscape, challenges and opportunities for change:

  1. Where are we now?
  2. What are the challenges?
  3. What needs to happen?

Read more about the blueprint and the Maths Snapshots series here. We hope to do some more of these papers. What other issues do you think are essential to tackle?

What do you think of this site?

ACME is reviewing the way it provides information to you on this site. We have put together a short survey to get your views. It should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

We would appreciate your thoughts by 2 February 2015. All those who do the survey will be entered into a draw for a set of science and mathematics books!
