Third International Conference on Technology in Mathematics Teaching

September 29th - October 2nd, 1997

University of Koblenz

This conference is about the role of technology in mathematics education at
school, college and university. It seeks to continue at a European venue
the tradition established by the International Conference on Technology in
Collegiate Mathematics (ICTCM), founded by Professors Bert Waits and
Franklin Demana of the Ohio State University, and held annually in the
United States of America since 1988. That tradition has been widely
influential in the effective use of technology in mathematics teaching.
ICTMT-3 continues as the third European conference (the first in
Birmingham, England, 1993 and the second in Edinburgh, Scotland, 1995).

CTMT - 3 Koblenz

The third European International Conference on Technology in Mathematics
Teaching will bring together classroom practitioners, curriculum
developers, mathematical education researchers and university lecturers,
all of whom share a desire to improve the quality of student learning.
Keynote lectures and invited lectures by distinguished speakers will be
complemented by a programme of specialist short talks and workshops. We
hope there will be an exhibition of books and products by publishers,
software and calculator companies. The conference will take place at the
campus of the University in Koblenz, situated on the Rhine peninsula of
Koblenz-Oberwerth, one mile from the main railway station of Koblenz.

The Koblenz University is part of the University Koblenz-Landau, a
university of Rhineland-Palatinate with nearly eight thousand students,
half of whom study in the four faculties of educational sciences, of
letters, of natural sciences and of computer sciences in Koblenz. Training
many teacher students on the one hand and many computer science students on
the other at the university, one endeavours to connect education with the
use of computers.

Koblenz is a two thousand years old city, situated in the centre of the
famous Rhine valley, where the Mosel joins the Rhine. It provides access to
many sites in and outside the town, like the old city with famous buildings
and churches, the "Deutsches Eck", the Loreley at St. Goarshausen, many old
castles of the Rhine valley, the monastery of Maria Laach, the Lahn valley
with Bad Ems and Limburg. Thirtyfive miles north of Koblenz lies the city
of Bonn, sixty miles north Köln (Cologne), sixty miles south Mainz and
hundred miles south-west Luxembourg.
The International Airports of Frankfurt, of Cologne/Bonn and of Duesseldorf
are all convenient for Koblenz. There are rapid train connections from
these airports to Koblenz. Inter City Trains run through Koblenz from the
south of Germany (Munich, Stuttgart, Freiburg (Black Forrest)) to the north
(Hamburg) and as well to the east (Berlin). A wide range of good quality
accomodation is available in Koblenz.

The conference languages will be English and German.

The conference fee will be DM 200 (payment before 01. 07. 1997) and will
include the cost of lunches, coffees, teas and the proceedings published on
