The Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) was established in 1952 by teachers from all over the UK to encourage the development of mathematics education in terms of relating it more closely to the needs of the learner. It is governed by its General Council. There are about 4 000 members - mainly teachers in primary and secondary schools. It is a registered charity and all profits from subscriptions and trading are re-invested into mathematics education. The ATM provides opportunities to bring together all those concerned with mathematics education for all age ranges. It supports local branches, informal support networks, courses and conferences. The Association of Teachers of Mathematics produces policy statements and publishes responses to National and Government initiatives. The ATM has a number of ‘Working Groups’, which function it is to examine particular areas of the mathematics education field to develop policy, resources and action. The highlight of each year is the annual Easter conference, which is a celebration of mathematics teaching for hundreds of people who still get great enjoyment from their chosen career.
