About this resource

This website is a network for Maths Teachers at all levels of education committed to addressing issues of equity and social justice in the classroom. The aim is to share teaching ideas, best practices, and resources amongst its members, and to provide encouragement and support.

Activities of the TMSJN include seminars and workshops, Engaging with the research literature on TMSJ, and developing teaching resources focused on TMSJ.

Why we recommend this resource

While the teaching of Maths is not often seen as a direct link to Social justice issues, it is of paramount importance that these issues are discussed across curriculums and subjects in education institutions. TMSJN is at the forefront of this discussion and is definitely worth engaging with for any maths teacher.

The Network is currently convened by Pete Wright, who is an Associate Professor of Maths Education at University College London Insitute of Education, demonstrating the level of expertise involved in the network.
