Mission Statement

The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (the 'Community') is a membership organisation that exists to promote Applications and Modelling (A&M) in all areas of mathematics education - primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.

The Community, through its membership, research and other activities, is recognised as 'The International Study Group for Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA)' by its affiliation to the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI).

Here is the history of ICTMA (at http://www.icmihistory.unito.it/ictma.php).


ICTMA20 will be held in Wrzburg, Germany Following the link http://ictma20.dmuw.de to the ICTMA20 conference website.
