1. We strive for the education of peace and democracy based on the Constitution of Japan and the Fundamentals of Education Law, and we intend to make every effort to establish correct mathematics education as one of its indivisible parts.
2. Correct mathematics education is not only to prepare for everyone a firm foundation to form his/her own view of the world, but also offer his/her a basic ability by which he/she can act positively in a future society where we can expect remarkable developments in science and technology.
3. Research can develop correctly only when a functional unity between theory and practice exists. Theory searches for laws existing behind a complex reality, while practice amends and reforms old theories by finding unexpected facts. We will strive to unite both these aspects.
4. In order to put forward our research and movement toward our ideals, AMI must be an organic group with a powerful cohesive strength. This cohesion can be guaranteed only by the atmosphere of free discussion which values every member's original ideas at all costs and by a self-discipline in the group whereby we persist in following decisions made by these free discussions.
5. We cannot realize our ideals without the cooperation of many people. So we appeal to all people concerned with mathematics education; parents, specialists, and students as well as teachers engaged in education day and night. We long for the realization of our ideals hand in hand with them.(August 3, 1965)
