Through the Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP), an MEI managed project, collaboration has taken place with over 50 universities across the country. This has ranged from universities hosting FMSP events, to employing our local Area Coordinators. MEI has also worked with universities to enable them to encourage the study of further mathematics.
We have worked with universities, schools and colleges, learned societies, professional bodies and industry to develop Integrating Mathematical Problem Solving (IMPS) resources. These resources are designed to help teachers of mathematics and teachers of other subjects at A Level teach relevant aspects of mathematics and statistics, showing how they are used in solving real problems.
A Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) Pilot Project took place at Manchester Metropolitan University between 2004 and 2006. MEI is interested in developing the RME approach to mathematics pedagogy and in taking it forward towards wider usage across the country. We commissioned the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM) at Durham University as independent evaluator of the projects at MMU, with the evaluation report being produced in 2012.
In a joint venture with Keele University, MEI has made A level revision material available in the form of video solutions of past exam papers, with videos with solutions to OCR's GCSE Maths exams also planned. The Keele Maths Solutions videos take the form of a power-point type presentation with a voice overlay, and are available direct to students, and also to schools and colleges.
We are pleased to offer a discount to PGCE students at our annual conference.
