Mathematics education and Covid-19

The Joint Mathematical Council of the UK and the Royal Society's Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education invite teachers of mathematics to complete a  survey on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the teaching and learning of mathematics for 3-19 year olds in primary and secondary schools and colleges

Survey aims
The survey aims to:
  • Investigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the teaching and learning of mathematics in the second half of 2019-20 academic year and during this term;
  • Explore how teachers have made use of online and blended resources and the challenges of engaging learners at distance; 
  • Consider possible future impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on mathematics teaching and learning; 
  • Inform teachers, leaders and other stakeholders of what is happening and how the mathematics education of young people can be best supported in these challenging times.

Before you start the survey, please note the following: 

  • It would support the analysis if you would provide some information about your work context. This information will remain confidential. 
  • Please try and answer as many questions as apply to you.
  • There is no minimum word limit for open responses but we encourage a maximum limit of 50 words per answer. 
  • The survey is expected to take around 10-15 minutes to complete.

Who this is for
This survey is for teachers of mathematics in schools and colleges in the UK.

The survey launched on Monday 2 November 2020. Responses should arrive no later than Monday 23 November 2020, with early responses encouraged where possible.
