About ACME

What is ACME?

The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) develops advice to influence mathematics education policy.

This ranges from early years right through to school and college education. ACME undertakes evidence-informed analysis, harnessing and reflecting the expertise of the mathematics community.

ACME members are individual experts with experience across all phases of mathematics education in England, headed by a Chair of international standing. As a committee, ACME provides an authoritative position on policy issues. An Outer Circle of up to 36 independent experts with a wide range of experience are drawn upon in developing advice.

When was ACME established?

ACME was established in 2002 by the Royal Society and the Joint Mathematical Council of the UK with the explicit backing of all major mathematics organisations in order to provide constructive advice on mathematics education.

ACME's activities are kindly supported by the Royal Society, the Department for Education, the Wellcome Trust, the London Mathematical Society (LMS) and the Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (IMA).

ACME received funding from 2002 to 2015 from the Gatsby Foundation.
