Mathematics Education. Anglo-Soviet Seminar (1st, Oxford, England, September 8-16, 1981).
Wilson, Bryan, Ed.
This report presents 23 papers prepared for the first Anglo-Soviet Seminar on Mathematics Education, held in Oxford in September 1981. Ten leading British mathematics educators met with six Soviet participants for an intensive program of information sharing and discussion which covered the teaching and learning of mathematics at all school levels. Each theme of the seminar was introduced by two speakers, one from each country. The speakers highlighted important points in the papers, leaving time for discussion (summarized in the report). The sessions focused on an introduction to the school systems in each country, formative periods, the current scene, the primary stage, the middle stage, research, in-service support for teachers, mathematics for life, the senior stage, and calculators and computers. The closing discussion and a retrospective view of the seminar are included, as well as the program and a list of participants. (MNS)
