happy to do so.

Please share this 'Call' widely.]



International Congress on Mathematics Education

Tokyo/Makuhari, Japan

July 31 - August 6, 2000

Working Group for Action No. 11

The Use of Technology in Mathematics Education

(Computers, Calculators, IT Media)



The International Program Committee (IPC) for ICME-9 has established
WGA11 and invited us, Rolf Biehler of Germany and Barry Kissane of
Australia, to serve as Co-Chief Organizers of this Working Group. This
is a call for those interested in the relevant aspects of the use of
technology in mathematics education to contact us with a view to
contributing to the activities of the WGA.

The WGA will cover a wide territory, so that we intend to form special
interest groups when the needs, interests and possible contributions of
those attending are clearer to us. In particular, we expect the WGA to
cover a range of levels of education (primary (elementary), secondary
(high), post-secondary, teacher education), to involve various kinds of
technology (calculators, computers, telecommunications, WWW and
multimedia) and to focus attention on various aspects of mathematics
itself (number, space, algebra, statistics, probability, calculus,
modelling, etc).

Please contact us if you would like to make a contribution to the work
of the WGA. We would like to know what kind of contribution you could
offer (such as a report on a project, reflections on present and future
developments, identification of curriculum development issues,
principles of instructional design, in-depth empirical studies, etc.)
Please also identify the level(s) of education, the kinds of technology
and the mathematical aspects of your possible contribution. A short
abstract of up to twenty lines would be helpful. However, you could
also express your interest in the WGA and leave it open whether you
will make a contribution.

We would also be interested in your advice on aspects of technology
which ought to be addressed in the WGA, but which do not fit into the
classifications suggested here.

Further detailed elaboration of the scope and direction of the WGA can
be obtained from the following website up to the date of the Congress:

If you don't have access to the WWW, please send a note and we can send
you the detailed information by email or regular mail. We hope that you
will consider making a contribution to the work of WGA11 and look
forward to hearing from you soon. Please contact us directly,
preferably by email to both of us if possible.

Please circulate this Call for Contributions to those colleagues of
yours who may be interested in WGA11.
