Henri Fehr and Charles Laisant created the international research journal L'Enseignement Mathématique in 1899, and early on this journal became the official organ of ICMI. A bulletin is published twice a year by ICMI, and from December 1995 this bulletin has been available at the organisation's official website. In the years between World War I and World War II there was little activity in the organisation, but in 1952 ICMI was reconstituted. At this time the organisation was reorganised, and it became an official commission of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). As a scientific organisation, IMU is a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU). Although ICMI follows some of the general principles of IMU and ICSU, the organisation has a large degree of autonomy.

The "I AM" Activity is the original Ascended Master Teachings religious movement founded in the early 1930s by Guy Ballard (1878 1939) and his wife Edna (1886-1971) in Chicago, Illinois. It is an offshoot of theosophy and a major predecessor of several New Age religions including the Church Universal and Triumphant. The movement had up to a million followers in 1938 and is still active today on a smaller scale. According to the official website of the parent organization, the Saint Germain Foundation, its worldwide headquarters is located in Schaumburg, Illinois and there are approximately 300 local groups worldwide under several variations of the names "I AM" Sanctuary, "I AM" Temple, and other similar titles. As of 2007, the organization states that its purpose is "spiritual, educational and practical," and that no admission fee is charged for their activities. The term "I AM" is a reference to "the name that God gave Himself in Exodus 3:14".
