Information received from Jeremy Hodgen.

CERME-8: The 8th Congress of the European Society
for Research in Mathematics Education

Antalya, Turkey, February, 6th to 10th, 2013


Group Leader
Jeremy Hodgen (UK)

María C. Cañadas (Spain)
Therese Dooley (Ireland)
Reinhard Oldenburg (Germany)

Scope and Focus of WG3
Algebraic Thinking is a well-established working
Group at CERME. WG3 will build on the work at
previous conferences to provide a forum for
international discussion and collaboration. We
will consider papers that question or provide
insights on existing assumptions on any aspect of
algebraic thinking, teaching and learning. This
working group welcomes papers from a variety of
different theoretical approaches and
methodological frameworks. We expect that papers
will address issues at all levels from early
algebra through to algebra at university and

Call for papers and poster proposals
In WG3 we welcome theoretical, methodological,
philosophical, empirical or developmental papers
(10 pages maximum) and poster proposals (2 pages)
on issues related to algebraic thinking. The
scope of the working group is broad and topics
may include the following, though any
paper/poster of relevance to the overall focus of
the group will also be welcomed:

Purposes for the teaching and learning of
algebra; History, philosophy, epistemology and/or
logics; International comparisons; Beliefs and/or
Modelling and/or applications of algebraic
thinking; Problem-solving; Generalization;
Transition to symbolization; Proof and
Language, discourse, semiotics and/or the role of
gesture; Learning processes; Concepts,
difficulties and/or errors.
Representations; Use of Computer Algebra Systems
and/or other technologies or tools; Task design.
Curriculum, assessment and/or relationship of
algebra to other mathematical topics; Didactics
and the teaching of algebra; The nature and/or
importance of "early algebra"; Teacher education.
The focus of the research may vary from
micro-level studies individual students and
classrooms, teachers and student teachers to
macro-level studies of educational systems. We
particularly welcome papers that develop themes
explored in the Algebraic Thinking Working Group
at previous CERME conferences.

We welcome both established researchers and
newcomers. We expect that all papers will report
systematic studies of algebraic thinking and will
refer to the literature in the field.

Papers and poster proposals should use the CERME8
template, and conform to the guidelines at
To submit your paper or poster, you must email it
as a WORD document to Jeremy Hodgen at
jeremy.hodgen (at) AND to the
conference secretariat at
by 15th September 2012. Please send a PDF version
IN ADDITION to the WORD document.

Reviews and decisions
Each paper will be peer-reviewed by three people
from among thosewho submit papers to this working
group. Please expect to be asked to review up to
three papers yourself between 15th September and
22nd October 2012. It may be necessary for you to
revise your paper before finalacceptance. Please
reserve some time to do this in the second half
of November.The group leaders will decide about
the acceptance of posters.
