Uppsala, Sweden

1st Announcement

Organizer: Department of Education, Uppsala University

We are calling for papers for this third conference continuing the successful works initiated in Iceland (June 2009) and continued in Portugal (October 2011).

Submission of abstracts, and later on papers, is done via the conference website:

The conference

History of mathematics education, since it became first visible internationally at ICME 10 in 2004 in Copenhagen as the TSG 29, is meanwhile a well-established research area. The first international journal devoted to this field of study, the International Journal for the History of Mathematics Education, is published since 2006. History of mathematics education became a subject in various international meetings, for instance at the ESU-5 (Prague, 2007) and ESU-6 (Vienna, 2010), at the CERME meetings, and at ICME 11 (Monterrey, 2008, TSG 38), ICME 12 (Seoul, 2012, TSG 35) and HPM2012 (Daejong, 2012)

The first specialized research conference, entitled “On-going Research in the History of Mathematics Education”, held in Garðabær near Reykjavík (the capital of Iceland) in 2009, turned meanwhile to a series of such specialized conferences. We are now organizing the third international conference, this time in Uppsala, Sweden. Uppsala University has longstanding traditions in studies of the history of education and more recently also the history of mathematics and mathematics education.

The themes treated in the former conferences were in particular (see also the Proceedings): Geometry teaching, Algebra teaching, Teaching of calculus, Interdisciplinarity and contexts, The modern mathematics movements, Curriculum history, Development of mathematics education in specific countries, Practices of teaching, Mathematics textbooks and Transmission and reception of ideas.

We are projecting to publish peer reviewed proceedings.

Organizing committee:

–  Kristín Bjarnadóttir

–  Fulvia Furinghetti

–  Johan Prytz

–  Gert Schubring

Further information about the conference, accommodation and Uppsala is or will be available on the conference website.
