Welcome to BSRLM
BSRLM is a national organisation for people interested in research in mathematics education.
It is a major forum for sharing research in mathematics education in the United Kingdom. It provides a supportive environment for both new and experienced researchers to develop their ideas.
On this site, you can find out about:
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Members include teachers, researchers, students and education advisors.
Members’ research interests include the teaching and learning of mathematics, mathematics assessment, mathematics curriculum development and mathematics teacher education and professional development.
Members’ research covers the full range of mathematics education, from pre-school to further and higher education, as well as learning in the workplace and other contexts.

What We Do
The aims of BSRLM are:
- To be the major forum for research into mathematics education in this country;
- To be both an environment for supporting new researchers and a forum for established ones;
- To be accessible to as wide a range as possible of people interested in mathematics education;
- To promote the conduct and dissemination of research in mathematics education in this country.
BSRLM organises three day-conferences each year. Members take advantage of a supportive atmosphere to present reports of work-in-progress, recently completed studies, or more speculative thinking. Informal proceedings, comprising short papers from meetings, are published.
We organise the British Educational Research Association (BERA) Mathematics Education Special Interest Group (SIG). This is a a forum for bringing together educational researchers interested in a wide range of questions and concerns involving the teaching and learning of mathematical ideas, both inside and outside of formal educational settings.
BSRLM publications include occasional monographs, annual collections of reviewed research papers from 1990-2000 and, since 2000, the journal Research in Mathematics Education, published by Taylor and Francis.
RME now has its own page on the publisher’s website
Janet Duffin Award
The Janet Duffin Award is made annually by the Society to the author (or authors) of what is judged to be the most outstanding contribution — either research paper or essay review — published in the Society’s journal, Research in Mathematics Education [RME], during the preceding calendar year.
