************************************************* Sent at the request of Koeno Gravemeijer and Anita Rampal. ************************************************* Topic Study Group 32 (TSG 32) for ICME-12 -- Mathematics curriculum development
The TSG 32 organizing committee is co-chaired by Anita Rampal (India) and Koeno Gravemeijer (Netherlands), and with additional team members Hwang (Korea), Margaret Brown (United Kingdom), Cyril Julie (South Africa), along with IPC Liaison Cheryl Praeger.
The organizing committee organized the accepted papers for TSG 32 in four groups, according to the following themes:
o Theme 1. Authenticity & Inquiry July 10 o Theme 2. Implementation July 11 o Theme 3. The Syllabus July 13 o Theme 4. Math Topics July 14
TGS 32 has four 90-minute sessions, which will be devoted to research, policy or design that focuses on mathematics curriculum development. This TSG will include presentations and discussions on the state-of-this topic area and new trends and developments in research and practice in mathematics education. In addition there is a poster session, which is common for all TSGs. The time available only allows for relatively short presentations by the authors: 10-15 minutes for short papers; and 20-30 minutes for the four long papers.
The structure for each of the four 90-minute sessions will include
1. a long presentation (20-30 min each), followed by 2. short paper presentations (max. 10-15 min each).
At the end of days two and three there will be a "chat-session", in which the participants get the opportunity to talk to individual presenters in small groups. On day two the presenters of day one and two are asked to make themselves available, on day three the same will be asked of the presenters of day three and four.
The following timetable for TSG 32 provides details on the schedule.
