Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI)

MEI is committed to improving mathematics education and promotes teaching and learning through different strands of activity. We support teachers through a range of professional development opportunities, including our annual conference. Innovative resources are continually being developed to extend and enrich your knowledge of mathematics, whether teacher, student, undergraduate or member of the workforce.

MEI takes various opportunities to share and discuss with you the changing landscape of mathematics education, including consultation, discussions, social media, and our newsletters. Another way you can get involved is through our membership scheme. Our local branches for Members and Educational Associates provide professional development as well as a forum for discussion.

MEI is an independent charity; any income generated through our work is used to support mathematics education. We are a partner in the NCETM consortium, with responsibility for the secondary mathematics strand and also manage the government-funded Further Mathematics Support Programme.

Maths Item of the Month

May 2017
In Memory of Malcolm Swan

Malcolm Swan

It was with great sadness that MEI learnt of the death of Malcolm Swan towards the end of April. Malcolm was a hugely influential and highly respected figure in Maths Education, particularly through his work with the Shell Centre and the University of Nottingham, as well as being universally liked by everyone who came into contact with him. As a tribute to Malcolm we would like to highlight a small sample of some of his resources.

The “Language of Functions and Graphs” and “Problems with Patterns and Numbers” are now widely regarded as classic texts in supporting students developing their understanding of mathematics. They can be downloaded from mathshell.com.

Malcolm also worked on the “Improving Learning in Mathematics” materials, developed for the DfES Standards Unit. The full materials are available from the STEM Learning resources at stem.org.uk/elibrary/collection/2933. MEI has recently reworked the Traffic program that accompanied these into a web-based version using GeoGebra – this can be found at geogebra.org/m/AjWXqFVM.
