International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications

ICTMA Homepage
The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (the 'Community') is a membership organisation that exists to promote Applications and Modelling (A&M) in all areas of mathematics education  primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities
Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP)
The Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) is an awardwinning nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve mathematics education for students of all ages. Since 1980, COMAP has worked with teachers, students, and business people to create learning environments where mathematics is used to investigate and model real issues in our world.

Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics
Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics 2012 report takes into account the changes in the types of industries that are hiring mathematical and computational scientists, the requirements for their jobs, the contributions they make as mathematical or computational scientists to their group’s tasks, and their work environment.

Computer Based Mathematics
Computer Based Mathematics building a completely new math curriculum with computerbased computation at its heart, while campaigning at all levels to redefine math education away from historical handcalculating techniques and toward reallife problemsolving situations that drive highconcept math understanding and experience.

Go Figure: Predicting the World with Math with participants: James Fowler, Steven Strogatz, Andrew W. Lo, Seth Lloyd
Algorithms are the unsung heroes of everything from fighting crime and searching the world’s information to selecting movies and even choosing mates. These complex digital decisionmaking mechanisms mine mountains of data to make predictions for, well, nearly anything. And analysts thus armed are revealing unexpected connections between widely disparate systems. Join an exploration of the surprising predictive power of math, and probe the theoretical limits of even the most promising computers of tomorrow. We’re tackling ever more complex problemsbut are there some problems simply beyond the reach of machines?
