CASIO
At Casio, we understand that mathematical education is about a whole lot more than just developing calculating abilities. Casio's latest graphing technologies provide intuitive, user-friendly interfaces which deliver ease of access to regular functions and features, and the ability to delve deeper into problem solving and exploration – perfectly suited to mixed ability classrooms and power users alike.

Casio have a range of calculators, from advanced scientific suitable for the new specification, through to advanced colour graphic calculators capable of 3D representation. All the calculators are permitted in examinations. We provide CPD, resources (many linked to publishers' textbooks) and support for teachers using the graphic calculators, free of charge.

Hodder Education
One of the UK’s leading Educational publishers, we provide innovative products to support the curriculum, including KS3 and GCSE Mastering Mathematics and materials for the 2017 A level specifications which are being developed with MEI. Visit our stand for more information.

OCR
OCR is a leading UK awarding body, committed to providing general and vocational qualifications that inspire, engage and equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to progress.

Our range of qualifications cover all learner styles, needs and abilities, from Entry Level, GCSEs, AS/A Levels plus Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals in areas such as IT, Sport, Health and Social Care and Engineering.

Our GCSE (9-1) Maths is designed to be straightforward and accessible so you can tailor how you deliver the course to suit your students' needs. Our new and accredited AS and A level Mathematics specifications offer coherent courses of study to develop your students' mathematical understanding, providing them with the skills to analyse situations in mathematics and elsewhere. Mathematics B (MEI), Further Mathematics B (MEI) and Core Maths qualifications have been developed in collaboration with Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI).

We aim to support teachers effectively from initial enquiry right through to results day with CPD training, Teach Network session, teaching and learning resources, assessment preparation support and publisher materials.

Meet the OCR Maths team at the exhibition on Friday and find out more about our qualifications and support.

Purple Office
As stationery and office furniture supplier to MEI, Purple Office is delighted to have sponsored the conference delegate packs.

At Purple Office it is our belief that Climate Change is a significant issue for all of us, but most especially for our children and grandchildren. Whether you believe that the damage to our environment is man-made or natural, there is no doubt that we need to do something to guarantee our lifestyles, and even our survival. It is true that just one person cannot make a difference; however if enough people make changes to their lifestyle, the difference can be multiplied a million-fold. Stationery and office supplies may make up a small part of your company’s expenditure in a year, but every business needs it. We would like to give you the opportunity to make a difference by giving you a choice between traditional and environmentally friendly office supplies. You can make your buying decision based on value for money, quality, suitability sustainability, and ensure your own impact on the environment is minimised.

Our online catalogue service is there to make life easier for busy people. To search for the environmentally beneficial products simply tick the "green products only" box. You can even build your own ‘mini-catalogue’ of favourite items. Please visit our website to browse without obligation.
