The IMS was constituted in 1976 for the purpose of promoting and extending the knowledge of mathematics and its applications. As part of its remit, the society seeks to improve mathematics education in Ireland, particularly in third level.
The society publishes papers in maths education though its journal (Irish Math. Soc. Bulletin) and sponsors presentations on the subject at its annual meetings.
This year, the IMS has formed an education committeee, chaired by Prof. A.G. O Farrell (Maynooth University) which draws on a wide spectrum of mathematical teaching expertise in Ireland.
