The Mathematical Association exists to support and promote confidence and enjoyment in mathematics for all, and especially young people.
We do this through interacting with teachers and others, including young people themselves, via our publications and resources, workshops, conferences, professional development provision, nation-wide branches, and interactions with the media.
The Primary Mathematics Challenge (PMC) offers a National Challenge to pupils aged 9-11.
The PMC is not designed to be just another test in the school year. We are of the belief that the PMC encourages enthusiasm, boosts confidence in mathematics and shows the different way questions can be asked. We believe in the importance of Problem Solving as a means of helping pupils develop their reasoning skills.
