3rd International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematics

Attention to the quality and character of undergraduate mathematics, in a time of new technologies and pedagogies, and advances in research on learning, is taking place in colleges and universities across the world. This summer, the third International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematics will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from June 30 – July 5. Information about the conference can be found at: http://www.tmd.org.tr/ictm3/

The conference presentations will be centered around the following themes:

Educational Research:
Results of current (unpublished) research in mathematics education, and assessment of student learning.

Technology/ Technology based Educational Systems:
Effective integration of computer technology (Calculators, Computer Algebra Systems, WWW resources) into the undergraduate curriculum.

Innovative Teaching Formats:
Innovative ways of teaching undergraduate mathematics courses: cooperative and collaborative teaching and learning styles.

Distance Learning:
Distance Learning Technologies for teaching and learning mathematics. Current software/hardware delivery media. Visions for the future.

Specific Courses:
Reform efforts in specific mathematics courses and assessment results.

Other Disciplines:
The effects of changes in the teaching of mathematics courses in other disciplines (needs of client disciplines; interdisciplinary courses).

This series of international conferences began in 1998 in Samos, Greece, in celebration of the 2500th anniversary of the death Pythagoras.

Ignatios Vakalis, who with his American colleague Deborah Hughes Hallet has been the catalyst for these conferences, is a leader in the PKAL Faculty for the 21st Century Network and in Ohio’s state-wide initiative in Computational Sciences.
