Topic Study Group 5 (TSG 5) for ICME-12

Mathematics education in and for work

The TSG 5 organizing committee is co-chaired by
Geoff Wake (UK) and Keiko Yasukawa (Australia),
with additional team members Corinne Hahn
(France), Ok-Kyeoung Kim (Korea), Tine Wedege
(Sweden), Rudolf Strasser (Germany) along with
IPC Liaison Morten Blomhoej.

TSG 5 has four 90-minute sessions (July 10, 11,
13, and 14) each of which will be focused on
different issues in relation to mathematics
education in and for work. Only a small number of
papers were submitted and accepted for inclusion
in the programme of the Topic Study Group. These
papers will be used to stimulate each session
with the author(s) using the presentation of
their work to generate discussion. It is the
intention that a publication will be developed
from the work of the group during and beyond
ICME-12.

The following timetable for TSG 5 provides details of the schedule.
