The conference presentations are centered
around the following themes:
- EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH: Results
of current research in mathematics education and the assessment of student
learning. Access and equity.
- TECHNOLOGY: Effective integration
of computing technology (Calculators, Computer Algebra Systems, WWW resources)
into the undergraduate curriculum
- INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHODS
: Innovative ways of teaching undergraduate mathematics, such as cooperative
and collaborative teaching. Writing in mathematics; laboratory courses.
- CURRICULA INNOVATIONS: Revisions
of specific courses and assessment of the results. History of mathematics;
innovative applications; project driven curricula.
- PREPARATION OF TEACHERS:
Trends in teacher education. Changing needs of teachers.
- MATHEMATICS AND OTHER DISCIPLINES
: The effects of changes in the teaching of mathematics on other fields. The
needs of client disciplines; interdisciplinary courses.
- DISTANCE LEARNING: Distance
learning technologies (networking, tele-education) for teaching and learning
mathematics. Current hardware and software delivery media; educational materials.
Visions for the future.
