MEI (Mathematics in Education and Industry) began with a small group of teachers in the early 1960s. Since those early days the organisation has grown into the country’s leading independent mathematics curriculum development body. MEI’s current work is wideranging and includes two major programmes that are particularly relevant to universities.
- Teaching Advanced Mathematics (TAM) programme is designed for non-specialists teaching some mathematics. It provides them with subject knowledge and advice on pedagogy so that they can teach up to A Level. This programme is run in conjunction with 4 universities and links in with their masters’ programmes providing Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) points.
- The Further Mathematics Network is described in more detail below.
Our work with these programmes has led us to develop sources of advice and teaching and learning resources which universities may well find useful.
