Welcome to ALM !
Adults Learning Mathematics (ALM) is an international forum for the exchanging of ideas, practice, and research at all levels. If you decide to become a member of the ALM community you will have a chance to share your knowledge and experiences with colleagues from across Europe, the Americas, and Australasia, with leading figures in mathematics education research, policy and practice, numeracy practitioners and postgraduate researchers.
Our online seminars and annual conferences also offer members working with adults learning mathematics unique opportunities to present practical experiences as well as access new thinking within a supportive and friendly research environment.
We are delighted you are interested in our work so do 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 the international adults learning mathematics research community.
In ALM, we also recognise that there is often a widespread negative perception of mathematics, often reinforced by high profile individuals who can be heard to say, “I was terrible at maths in school”, or “I couldn’t do maths, I was always more creative, you know, a people-person”. In ALM we work to overcome the negative implications of such statements that can limit a person’s life choices and career development, as well as passing on this attitude among families, across generations and throughout communities and society.
We gather in the ALM community with the common cause to make mathematics available to all, especially adults. We know from teaching experiences that positive learning outcomes in mathematics can improve people’s confidence in themselves and their life chances.
By becoming a member, you support ALM to maintain a public presence, to host seminars both virtually and in person, and to provide bursaries for emerging researchers and practitioners from time to time as the extent of our funds allow.
Please do become a member and join us in our quest.
