Welcome to ALM!


We are delighted you are interested in our work. We are an international forum for research into Adults Learning Mathematics at all levels. Founded in 1992, our membership now extends across Europe, the Americas, and Australasia, and includes the leading figures in mathematics education research, policy and practice, many numeracy practitioners, and postgraduate researchers.

Our annual conferences offer those working with adults learning mathematics unique opportunities to present practical experiences, new thinking and research within a supportive and friendly environment. The conferences also offer opportunities to develop your professional network in this special interest group. Conference proceedings are published annually, along with an International Journal of peer reviewed papers.

We invite you to browse our list of on-line publications and consider joining us at our next conference to share your ideas with others working in this field. Do also consider becoming a member of ALM and access our bulletin to keep up to date with news of ALM events and publications that are relevant to this international Adults Learning Mathematics research community.
