ICME12  TSG 14: Final program
Posted:
Jun 26, 2012 7:06 PM



******************************************** Sent at the request of Viviane DURANDGUERRIER. ********************************************
Topic Study Group 14 (TSG 14) for ICME12: Reasoning, proof and proving in mathematics education
The TSG 31 organizing committee is cochaired by Team chairs: Maria Alessandra Mariotti (Italy), Stéphane Cyr (Canada) with team members Andreas Stylianides (UK), Viviane DurandGuerrier (France), Youngmee Koh (Korea), Kirsti Hemmi (Sweden)
According to the topics addressed by the papers accepted we identified four main themes to which each paper and poster may be related.
Theme 1 : Conception of proof from different theoretical perspective Theme 2: Proof in the classroom: the role of the teacher. Theme 3: Evaluation of proofs Theme 4: Curriculum and materials
Each of the four 90minute sessions (July 10, 11, 13, and 14) will be devoted to one of these themes. Part of the time will be devoted to a short presentation of the papers and part of the time will be devoted to a general discussion on the main points emerging from the presentations.
The structure for each 90minute session will include some brief opening remarks by the cochairs of the committee, followed by the presentations, 10minutes for long presentation and 5 minutes for short presentations.
At the conclusion of each session, the TSG 14 the cochairs will make some brief closing remarks. The following timetable for TSG 14 provides details on the schedule.
