NOTE: Dr. Alan Rogerson asked me to post this announcement ...

The Mathematics Education into the 21st Century Project, in cooperation
with The Third World Forum, Consortium of Jordanian Public Universities and
The National Center for Human Resource Development, Jordan, announce an

International Conference on "Mathematics for Living," Jordan, November
18-22, 2000

The Mathematics Education Into the 21st Century Project, coordinated by Dr.
Alan Rogerson and Professor Fayez Mina, is planning a series of
International Conferences to be held throughout the World leading into the
next millennium. The first of these was held in Egypt in November, 1999 and
will be followed by Jordan in November 2000.

The Conference has a local organizing committee, including representatives
from a Consortium of Jordanian Public Universities, which will be
coordinated by Dr. Hanan Innabi of the Internationally renowned National
Center for Human Resources Development in Amman, Jordan. It will also be
supported by the Third World Forum, which is Chaired by Prof. Ismail-Sabri
Abdalla - Coordinator of Project Egypt 2020 and Former Director of The
Institute of National Planning and former Minister of Planning (Egypt).

The conference theme is "Mathematics for Living" and should attract
teachers and researchers in Mathematics Education from around the world. We
welcome papers (in English) that deal with ALL aspects of mathematics
education and relate to innovative ways to help students and teachers deal
with the problem of making mathematics more "alive", more "realistic" and
more "accessible".
This could take the form of a paper on

-problem solving
-use of technology
-new ways of assessment
-ways of dealing with cultural differences
-overcoming gender and social barriers
-improving the curriculum
-using the statistics of everyday life
-effectively utilizing new paradigms in teaching and learning
-and so on.
