The conference for all 11-19 mathematics teachers

29 June - 1 July 2017

Keele University

MEI Conference 2017

The MEI Conference is an annual three-day event run by Mathematics in Education and Industry for 11-19 mathematics teachers of all specifications

This year we return to the stunning campus and conference facilities at Keele University

Chancellor's Building

As ever, the MEI Conference provides the opportunity for mathematics teachers and enthusiasts at all stages of their careers to share, explore, discuss and evaluate ideas for the classroom. This year teachers from schools and colleges in the Stoke-on-Trent Mathematics Excellence Partnership will be joining us.


Much of the conference will be devoted to workshops, twelve in all, with eight options in each: over 68 billion combinations! They cover a wide variety of topics, ensuring there is always something for everyone. These sessions are led by experienced teachers, examiners, and subject experts from many parts of the mathematical world. The handouts are later uploaded to the conference section of the MEI website.

In addition to the workshops, each day there will be a plenary from a guest speaker. This year we welcome statisticians Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter and Professor Tim Sparks, and mathematics educationalist Professor Anne Watson. We also welcome author Rob Eastaway who will entertain us after the Friday conference dinner.



Delegates can register for 1, 2 or 3 full days at the conference, with or without accommodation. In addition to the formal sessions there is the opportunity to participate in social activities such as our Thursday quiz, and Friday group walk, five-a-side football and conference dinner. The MEI Conference Exhibition, open on Friday, is a useful way for delegates to review products available to support their mathematics teaching. Also taking place on Friday, in and around the exhibition, is our Delegate Challenge.


We can offer a discount to full time students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and those in initial teacher training. Please email [email protected] to request information. If you are a practising UK teacher you may be interested in applying for an LMS CPD grant to help cover your conference costs.
