Timetable for TSG 11: "Teaching and learning of probability"

The TSG 11 organizing committee is co-chaired by Per Nilsson (Sweden)
and Jun Li (China), with additional team members Enriqueta Reston
(Philippines), Egan Chernoff (Canada), Efi Paparistodemou (Cyprus),
and Kyung-Hwa Lee (Korea), along with IPC Liaison Gail Burrill (USA).

TGS 11 has four 90-minute sessions (July 10, 11, 13, and 14) which
will be devoted to different themes of teaching and learning of
probability. In addition there is a poster session, which is common
for all TSGs. The papers accepted for presentation in the four
sessions are structured according to the following four themes:

Theme A: Curriculum Development and Policies
Theme B: Research on Students' Thinking and Reasoning
Theme C: Probability Literacy and Instructional Challenges
Theme D: Teacher Knowledge in probability teaching

Three key note speakers are invited to give the leading speeches
focus on the first three themes, and a Plenary Panel will initiate a
further discussion on the last theme.

11:55-12:00 Wrap-up discussion and closing given by Nilsson and Li

* Developing knowledge for probability teaching is intended to refer
both to what kind of knowledge teachers may need to provide for a
certain teaching quality and to how to facilitate the development of
such teacher knowledge.
