Sent at the request of Keiko Yasukawa & Geoff Wake.
Topic Study Group 5 (TSG 5) for ICME-12 - updated
program for 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 Straesser (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. On Saturday July 15, we will devote the
whole session to posters that have been submitted
to the session, and allow participants to examine
and discuss the work presented by the poster

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

TSG participants are also alerted to the
following session presented by Rudolf Straesser
and José Francisco Rodrigues on "Educational
Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry
(EIMI) - ICMI/ICIAM-study no. 20" on Monday, 9th
July, 17.30-19.00 which is expected to provide an
interesting and relevant reference for the TSG5
