Mathematics Education in Ireland Conference

The  conference theme, Accessing Mathematics: Inspiring Engaged Communities, aims to situate mathematics as a pursuit that is accessible for all learners at all ages. From early childhood settings through to adult education, engagement in mathematics is something that happens on a daily basis. Mathematics educators strive to engage learners in meaningful ways in the various settings in which they teach. In today’s world, quality engagement in mathematics is more important than ever. Mathematics is a collaborative pursuit, and all around the globe communities of learners engage in mathematics. Since the start of 2020 accessing mathematics, and collaboration in mathematics has been a challenge for many. While mathematics educators utilise remote or distance learning when necessary, this is not always ideal for all learners. We must endeavor to ensure that all members of mathematics learning communities can be encouraged and inspired to have a meaningful learning experience, and that these communities benefit mathematics learning for all of those who participate in them. At MEI 8 we will explore and debate research in mathematics education that is taking place in Ireland, and beyond, and we will seek to answer questions about how we can make mathematics more accessible for all communities of learners. We welcome papers from all aspects of mathematics education research, and especially those which can provoke discussion and debate on how the mathematics education community can inspire and engage all learners.
