Institute for Mathematical Pedagogy (IMP)
Anne Watson and John Mason have directed an annual 4 day working meeting called IMP since 2001.
A maximum of 25 people (teachers, advisers, academics, and us) meet and work on mathematical tasks
mostly chosen by Anne and by John and sometimes by one or two guests. The pain t is not to do the tasks, but rather to notice what is involved in working on the tasks, making sense, making progress, getting stuck, working with others, and the pedagogical implications of what we notice in ourselves.
.
There are no 'conference papers' though sometimes people are moved to write about their experiences (see MT 191; 194; 232) and often there is an opportunity to offer a task connected with the theme.
