The Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) is an independent committee, based at the Royal Society and operating under its auspices, that aims to influence Government strategy and policies with a view to improving the outcomes of mathematics teaching and learning in England and so secure a mathematically enabled population.
This group (chaired by Emma Cliffe), aims to bring together expertise and interest in issues surrounding supporting students with disabilities in maths, stats and OR. The group has an email list: to join go to the jiscmail website.
The BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium (BQCC) is a community of scientists, educators, and learners of all ages who are interested in supporting biology education that reflects realistic scientific practices. It is based in the USA and holds a variety of events throughout the year including a summer workshop.
The Dyscalculia and Dyslexia Interest Group aims to help dyscalculic and dyslexic students by:
- Exchanging information between ourselves as H.E. practitioners regarding the links between dyscalculia, dyslexia, maths anxiety and the study of Mathematics in Higher Education.
- Offering a forum a) for discussion of issues arising from the above, b) linking research and practice.
- Raising awareness of these issues generally and to find out what has been done in this field, particularly in higher education.
- Compiling a list of resources and pooling together practical ideas, such as a checklist for lecturers, and information on how to reproduce material accessible to dyslexics.
