A variety of science and mathematics education activities are reported in two sections. These activities include: conferences (both past and future); innovative projects/programs and initiatives at the primary, secondary, and teacher-education levels; instructional materials development/use; instructional strategies; science education research; science/mathematics education organizations; and others. Twenty-nine separate reports are presented in the first section (Activities in Great Britain). In addition to an annotated list of publications and various program/project descriptions, reports are provided on science in society audio cassettes; girls and physics; school technology/industry videotapes; and a review of secondary mathematics in Scotland. Twenty-seven reports are then provided in the second section (Overseas and International Activities). Among the reports presented are those from Belgium (International Colloquium on Geometry Teaching); Canada (A Study of Science Education); Egypt (Young Scientist's Competition); Lesotho (Bibliography on the Readability of Science Materials and Use of Language); Philippines (Science and Society Curriculum Project); and the United States (National Science Board Commission of Pre-College Education in Mathematics, Science, and Technology). Additional reports in this section are Mathematics Education in the Soviet Union, the International Directory of Mathematical Associations, and the International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology.
