Mathematics Education

Aims and vision of the TIG:
The main purpose of the Mathematics Education TIG is to share experiences and ideas among mathematics teachers and mathematics teacher educators from different countries to contribute to a better understanding of the problems that mathematics education is facing. It is expected that presentations, discussions and workshops can contribute to the development of a better mathematics teacher education for students and also for teachers (pre-service and in-service), whether they are in schools, colleges or universities. Teachers and researchers are welcome!

The goals of the Mathematics Education Thematic Interest Group are:
