Modernization of Mathematics Teaching in European Countries. Colloque International UNESCO.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This book reports the proceedings of a colloquium of European mathematics educators organized by UNESCO in 1968. Papers and discussion center on four main considerations: (1) Mathematics in contemporary society, including recent advances in mathematics, penetration of mathematics into other domains, the influence of computers, and the objectives of mathematics teaching; (2) Curriculum and instruction, including new teaching methods and new courses of study, the role of the teacher, use of materials, and extra-curricular activities; (3) Teacher education, including desired qualifications, methodological training, coordination with other sciences, in-service education, and the growth of professionalism; and (4) International cooperation, with suggestions for exchange of teachers and education information and materials. Forty papers are presented, most of them dealing with secondary school mathematics teaching. The speakers include H. Freudenthal, A. Krygowska, G. Papy, W. Servais, and H. Steiner. Each paper is printed in English, French or Russian, with abstracts in the other two languages. (MM)
