Making Sense of Mathematics - Review

Making Sense of Mathematics - a review of these excellent materials
These materials provide a fresh, effective way of covering the mathematical curriculum which will engage learners and answer many of the “what’s the point” questions. These are the type of materials which I, and many others, have been waiting for. Used effectively, they will engage our students and produce those who understand the principles of mathematics and are able to apply them in life.

NANAMIC transferred to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation from 1 April 2014


We are delighted to confirm that following the vote at the AGM on 3 July 2013, the National Association for Numeracy and Mathematics in Colleges CIO has now been formed.  The NANAMIC CIO was incorporated by the Charity Commission and registered as a charity number 1154042 on 1 Oct 2013.  The Constitution of NANAMIC CIO is available here.


Under the terms of the vote, the existing NANAMIC Association continued to operate until 31 March 2014, but all activities have been transferred to the CIO from that date and the old association has now been wound up.


All members of the Association as at 3 July 2013 are now also members of the CIO, and have the rights and duties as specified in the CIO Constitution.


If you joined NANAMIC between 3 July 2013 and 31 March 2014, your membership has been transferred to the CIO.
