The conference for all 11-19 mathematics teachers

2-4 July 2020

University of Bath

MEI Conference 2019

An annual three-day event run by MEI for 11-19 maths teachers of all specifications.

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

As ever, the MEI Conference provides the opportunity for maths teachers and enthusiasts at all stages of their careers to share, explore, discuss and evaluate ideas for the classroom.



Much of the conference will be devoted to group sessions:

  • 12 group sessions (4 per day)
  • 8 choices per session

These sessions cover a wide variety of topics, ensuring there is always something for everyone. They are led by experienced teachers and subject experts.

In addition to the group sessions, each day there will be a plenary from a guest speaker. This year we welcome Dr Eugenia Cheng, Scientist In Residence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Honorary Fellow of Pure Mathematics at the University of Sheffield; Professor Alison Etheridge, Professor of Probability at the Mathematical Institute and also the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford; and Craig Barton, education researcher and author of How I Wish I'd Taught Maths: Lessons learned from research, conversations with experts, and 12 years of mistakes. We also welcome Harry Baker, maths graduate and poet, 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 many social activities such as our annual quiz, an organised walk through the stunning university grounds, five-a-side football and conference dinner.

The MEI Conference exhibition will take place on Friday 28 June 2019 and, as in previous years, we anticipate 25-30 organisations joining us, all armed with the latest developments and resources. Our expectation is that this will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to browse and discover new products, see demonstrations, and talk with exhibitors to find out how they might be able to support you and your students.


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