USA: Matematiker synar nationellt kursplanearbete

Mathematics science research institute (MSRI) i Berkeley, California, har sedan 2004 anordnat en serie konferenser med titeln Critical issues in mathematics education. Den sjunde i ordningen anordnas den 7-9 juni 2010 och har titeln Reasoning and sense-making in the maths curriculum.

Bakgrundsbeskrivning:

The National council of Teachers of Mathematics has just released a new document, "Focus in high school mathematics: Reasoning and sense-making." The Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governor's Association have initiated a state-led effort to produce Common core state standards, which they hope will move states toward national curricular coherence. The national scene is being transformed through stimulus money aimed at having states adopt common standards. This is a significant time for mathematicians to weigh in for coherence and a focus on thinking, understanding, and sense-making. For this reason, MSRI will host the seventh "Critical issues in mathematics education" workshop on this topic. Themes of the workshop will include international comparisons, the role of a coherent national curriculum in the teaching of mathematics, and the ways in which technology can be used to support reasoning and sense-making.
