Topic Study Group 2:
New developments and trends in mathematics education at primary level
Polivalente Auditorium - Architecture + F201

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE START ON TUESDAY NOT MONDAYSORRY FOR ANY CONFUSION

PLEASE NOTE LAST MINUTE CHANGE TO SCHEDULE ON WEDNESDAY DUE TO WITHDRAWING PRESENTER
The purpose of this TSG is for participants with a particular interest in new developments and trends in primary mathematics education. The organizing team of TSG2 will review, select and organize contributions, some by invitation and some submitted by interested participants, that focus on this area. Working together, we will aim to provide an overview of the current state of the art in the topic and expositions of outstanding recent contributions.
[Detailed information on all TSGs is available on the ICME-11 website at http://icme11.org under “program.”]
The TSGs will meet for one session a day throughout the conference—a total of two 60-minute sessions and two 90-minute sessions. It is expected that TSG participants stay with this group throughout the four sessions. This is important to note if you are considering submitting a paper for this TSG.
Some papers will involve presentations, others will be provided as handouts during the sessions. Others will be available on the website only. There will be some discussion during the sessions, but, unlike Discussion Groups, the emphasis is on sharing innovative practice.

Aims, scope, and goal(s)

The goal of TG2 is to provide highly relevant and interesting presentations of new developments and trends in primary mathematics education from around the world. By sharing our international perspectives, we are confident that all of us will understand more of the highlights and challenges of our respective professional settings and be able to apply what we learn in each of our local contexts. We expect that some papers will be reporting on innovative research, while others may focus on innovative classroom practice, and some papers will be a blend of both.
