ICMI Study 24 Conference - School Mathematics Curriculum Reforms: Challenges, Changes and Opportunities
ICMI STUDY 24 study conference was held from 25 to 30 in November, 2018 at the Tsukuba International Congress Center, Tsukuba, Japan.
The International Commission on Mathematical Instruction is a worldwide organisation devoted to research and development in mathematical education at all levels. Its purpose is
to promote international programs of activities and publications that improve the collaboration, exchange and dissemination of ideas and information on all aspects of the theory and practice of contemporary mathematical education.
to foster efforts to improve the quality of mathematics teaching and learning worldwide.
to support and assist the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) and meetings or conferences of ICMI affiliated organizations.
This conference was attended by Professor Merrilyn Goos, Dr Niamh O’Meara, Dr. Patrick Johnson and PhD Researchers Kathy O’Sullivan and Stephen Quirke from EPI*STEM. In total nearly 100 delegates attended from 30 countries.
The conference enabled audiences to share their research with an international research community and engage in discussion about the pressing issues in Mathematics Education. Delegates are now involved in writing an ICMI Study Volume in which the findings to emerge at the conference will be presented. This book will be published by Springer and launched at ICME-14 in Shanghai in 2020.
