Posted:
Jun 12, 2012 6:23 PM



************************************* Sent at the request of Victor MartinezLuaces. ************************************* ICME 12 Topic Study Group 13  Teaching and Learning of Calculus
Aims
This Topic Study Group will seek contributions on the research and development in the teaching and learning of calculus, both at upper secondary and tertiary level. Contributions will account for advances, new trends, and important work done in recent years on the teaching and learning processes of Calculus.
Organization of the TSG 13
As usual, TSGs are the prime forum for participation at ICME12. At ICME12, our TSG will have four one and a half hour timeslots at our disposal and two general posters sessions. On the website of ICME12 it is possible to access to all relevant documents including long presentations, short presentations and posters.

Structure of the TSG 13
The organizing committee organized the accepted papers and posters for TSG 13 in the following way:
· Four papers (# 278, # 386, # 1346 and # 1420) were accepted for long presentations.
· A group of 13 papers ( # 156, # 170, # 228, # 556, # 567, # 580, # 908, # 937, # 1077, # 1345 # 1410, # 1632 and # 1648) were accepted for short presentations.
· In each session three or four short presentations and a long one will be delivered.
· Each session will be devoted to an important topic in Calculus teaching and learning.
· Posters in the general poster session which is common for all TSGs.
The time available only allows for relatively short presentations by the authors: 10 minutes for short papers; and 20 minutes for the three long papers, so the whole group will have at least half an hour for questions, comments and discussion.
The structure for each of the four 90minute session will include
1. some brief opening remarks by the cochairs of the committee, followed by
2. a long presentation (20 min each), followed by
3. three or four short paper presentations (10 min each).
4. At the conclusion of each session, there will be a general discussion.
The following timetable for TSG 13 provides details on the schedule (including timings of long and short presentations). Poster sessions are not listed  please refer to the ICME 12 list of poster presentations.
