The International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (IGPME) is an autonomous body, governed as provided for in its constitution. It is an official subgroup of the International Commission for Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) and came into existence at the Third International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-3) held in Karlsruhe, Germany in 1976. The conference in 2021 is the 44th annual meeting of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME 44).
4.1 The Constitution of IGPME
The original constitution of PME was adopted at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 17 August 1980 and changed at the AGM on 24 July 1987, on 10 August 1992, on 2 August 1994, on 18 July 1997, on 14 July 2005, and on 21 July 2012. PME has decided to seek charitable organization status under UK law and the new constitution related to this change has been accepted by the Annual General Meetings in 2018 and 2019. The application has been submitted to the Charity Commission and we hope to have their positive decision before the PME 44 in Thailand.
The objects of PME are to advance the field of mathematics education for the public benefit by:
