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?

ACME website survey

Thank you for everyone who completed the ACME Website Survey over the last few weeks. We received more than 50 responses to the survey, all of which will help us to improve the site for you.

We are delighted to announce that Sandie Blakesley, Lead Adviser for Mathematics at North Yorkshire County Council, won the prize draw for a set of science and maths books - congratulations!

We will keep you updated on the website redevelopment, which will be happening over the next couple of months. If you have any remaining thoughts or feedback, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
