The International Commission on Mathematical Instruction is a worldwide organisation devoted to research and development in mathematical education at all levels. Its purpose is:

to promote international programs of activities and publications that improve the collaboration, exchange and dissemination of ideas and information on all aspects of the theory and practice of contemporary mathematical education.

to foster efforts to improve the quality of mathematics teaching and learning worldwide.

to support and assist the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) and meetings or conferences of ICMI affiliated organizations.

ICMI was founded in 1908 and has been a commission of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) since 1952.

News and Events

The Discussion Document details the study and is a call for contributions, see here. The Study Conference will be held in Reims (France), April 23-26, 2024. The deadline for papers is September 15, 2023.

Submit your TSG paper or poster, register for the congress and apply, if elegible, to the Solidarity Fund Program 
Dont forget to register/apply/ and submit!

On behalf of the ICME-14 Local Organizing Committee, ICMI is uploading the ICME-14 Proceedings on this webpage gradually for reference only before its official publication. Here you can find the pre-print Proceedings.

The first IPC Meeting took place in Valencia (Spain) on February 23-25, 2023. The IPC as well as the ICMI President and ICMI Secretary-General ( ex-officio's and Series Editors) participated in the meeting.

In memory of Professor (Albert) Geoffrey Howson, the former ICMI Secretary General, the ICMI Newsletter in November featured an article outlining his numerous and important contributions to mathematical education as well as to ICMI,

ICMI hosted a one-day symposium on March 20, 2023, to gather scholars working in diverse areas, whose concerns could be broadly defined as “socio-ecological”.  Read here for more information.

The ICMI Newsletter covers a "Once Upon a Time" series that features historical vignettes from the archives of ICMI. In the March series, Bernard R. Hodgson shares his experience as he uncovers items from the Aarhus ICMI-Seminar on teaching of geometry. Click here for the full article.

The Klein Project is an IMU/ICMI project with the aim of producing mathematics resources for secondary teachers on contemporary mathematics. As part of the project, "vignettes" (short, readable pieces) on contemporary mathematics are produced and shared on the Klein Project Blog. Find out more about the work of the Klein Project in this article.
