Dear colleague

We would love to count on your participation and
contribution to the conference below and we
kindly request you to disseminate this
announcement to your contacts.

The Problem@Web International Conference on
Technology, Creativity and Affect in Mathematical
Problem Solving, jointly promoted by the
University of Algarve and by the Institute of
Education of the University of Lisbon, will be
held in Vilamoura, Portugal on May 2-4, 2014.

The conference stems from a Portuguese research
project (The Problem@Web Project) focusing on
mathematical problem solving that extends beyond
the mathematics classroom. The research field is
based on mathematical problem solving
competitions of an inclusive nature taking place
through the Internet. Three main topics have been
addressed within the project aims: students’ use
of digital tools in mathematical problem solving,
creative solutions to mathematical problems, and
affect in problem solving and competitions,
including parental involvement.

The conference official language will be English.
Strand 1 – Technology: Strategies and
representations used in technology-based problem
solving approaches
Strand 2 – Creativity: Students' mathematical
creativity in mathematical problem solving
Strand 3 – Affect: Attitudes and emotions of
students, parents and teachers regarding
mathematical problem solving
