Our Mission is to report to the EMS, and where appropriate to act, on educational issues relating to mathematics, including pedagogy and creativity in mathematics education, and the popularization and evolution of the taught subject. To support a broad network in mathematical education, and maintain connections between national mathematics societies, while not duplicating work that is their responsibility.
