International Cooperation in Mathematics Education: Promises and Challenges. Report on Discussion Group 5 at ICME10 Denmark 2004

Atweh, Bill, Boero, Paolo, Jurdak, Murad, Nebres, Bienvenido, & Valero, Paolo (2004) International Cooperation in Mathematics Education: Promises and Challenges. Report on Discussion Group 5 at ICME10 Denmark 2004. In International Congress of Mathematics Education 10 -Denmark.


The Discussion Paper raised some initial issues and questions, rather than take a stand on them, towards initiating the discussion and dialogue between mathematics educators. Six main questions were identified for consideration by the group. 1. What are the goals for international collaborations? 2. What are the barriers to genuine and equitable international cooperation? 3. Should cooperation be regional or global? 4. What forms could such cooperation take, and how to organize them? 5. How can a cooperative preparation of researchers in mathematics education contribute to the development of a genuine and equitable cooperation? 6. Can international cooperation lead to excessive homogenization? The discussion sessions during the Conference combined questions 3 and 4, and were planned to allow each participant the opportunity to discuss in small groups at least three of the 5 resulting questions. In order to give justice to the rich discussion at the conference, only three of the main questions will be reported upon here.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
