Internationellt projekt om statistikundervisning

The International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) och the International Association for Statistical Education (IASE) har beslutat ta fram en ny bok om statistikundervisning: Statistics Education in School Mathematics: Challenges for Teaching and Teacher Education.

Following the tradition of ICMI Studies, this Study will comprise two parts: the Joint Study Conference and the production of the Joint Study book. The Joint Study Conference will be merged with the IASE 2008 Round Table Conference.

The Joint Study Conference (ICMI Study and IASE Round Table Conference) will take place at the Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores, Monterrey, Mexico, from June 30 to July 4, 2008. Participation in the Conference is only by invitation, based on a submitted contribution and a refereeing process. Accepted papers will be presented in the Conference and will appear in the Proceedings that will be published by ICMI and IASE as a CD-ROM and on the Internet.

The second part of the Joint Study "the Joint Study book" will be produced after the conference and will be published in the ICMI Study Series. Participation in the Joint Study Conference does not automatically assure participation in the book, since a second selection and rewriting of selected papers will be made after the conference.

Proposed papers for contributions to the Joint Study Conference should be submitted by e-mail no later than October 1, 2007, to the IPC Study Chair (Carmen Batanero, batanero@ugr.es). Papers should be relevant to the Joint Study focus and research questions, as described in the Discussion Document (which is available at the Joint Study Website.
