5 things to do this fortnight

orange circles
Do you see exploring ways that you can improve learning in mathematics for your students as part of your job? Is there an aspect of teaching and learning that you and some colleagues would like to explore but time and money are getting in the way? The next round of Teacher Enquiry Funded Projects (TEFP) applications is now open. Applications should be based around one the specified broad themes – these include Using ICT in ways that focus on mathematics learning and reacting to student feedback. The closing date for applications is 8 March.

The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) provides a two-way channel between the mathematics community, the Government and its agencies, and other policy makers on mathematics education issues. It is now looking for two new members including one from the secondary mathematics community. Candidates for the positions are expected to have current or recent experience of teaching within schools and/or colleges. They will also have some knowledge of the education policy landscape and/or be willing to develop associated skills through membership of the Committee. The deadline for applications is 8 March. More details about the responsibilities and commitments, along with an application form, can be found on the ACME website

We’ve mentioned it before but this is a reminder to book your place at the British Congress of Mathematics Education (BCME) which is taking place from the 6-9 April. BCME7 is an event in which all sections of mathematics and mathematical education come together in a single conference to celebrate, enrich, refresh and build mathematical and pedagogical confidence and expertise. You can find out more details by visiting the BCME website

There's a number of ATM branch meetings in the coming weeks. If you’re in London, you’ll have a chance to explore 3D geometry through Cabri on 22 February, and on 11 March, you’ll get to explore correlation and regression. Durham, Avon and the Marches ATM branches are also meeting throughout March.

An early reminder that Mother’s Day is coming up on 14 March. The tradition of Mothering Sunday, which is always the fourth Sunday of Lent, is thought to have developed from the 16th Century practice of visiting your ‘mother church’ annually and this resulted in young apprentices and young women in service being released by their masters that weekend in order to visit their families.
