FE Magazine Issue 9

Welcome to the ninth issue of the FE Magazine, which has been put together at the seventh British Congress of Mathematics Education in Manchester where between sessions, representatives of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM), the Mathematical Association (MA), and the National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges (NANAMIC), met and agreed to form a joint post-16 working group. It is felt that by meeting together, the three subject associations can learn from each other and make use of their different expertise to enrich the opportunities, experiences and resources the associations can provide for those working with post-16 learners. A longer meeting is being planned for later in the summer term 2010.
