SEAMC : South East Asian Mathematics Competition http://www.seamc.asia/ SEAMC : South East Asian Mathematics Competition
SEAMC has evolved into an annual 2-day event organised by local volunteer teachers on a rotational basis throughout the region. Hundreds of international school students, aged 15 or younger, and their teachers come together for a long weekend (usually at the end of February) each year to share their enthusiasm for Mathematics and problem solving.
Each school enters two teams of three students and the Warry Cup is awarded to the overall winning team each year.

Find out how one school in Morocco is using a grove of olive trees planted in their school playground to teach students about maths.
The students care for the trees, harvest the oil, visit the camel-driven olive press and sell the resulting oil in their local market, all using maths.
Improving whole school performance through mathematicsImproving whole school performance through mathematics http://www.ncetm.org.uk/selfevaluation Improving whole school performance through mathematics
The quality of provision in mathematics is key to improving mathematics standards themselves and standards in other subjects.
The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) provides strategic leadership for mathematics-specific CPD. The NCETM portal includes a number of tools that can support school leaders and teachers in improving mathematics provision.
Using the NCETM portal, teachers can use Self Evaluation Forms or plan Performance Related Management targets that will have the greatest impact on learners.
The NCETM portal allows teachers to design a professional learning journey, during which they can discuss and share effective practice with teachers in other institutions.
