Proceedings of the 1983 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (7th, Vancouver, British Columbia, June 8-12, 1983).
Verhille, Charles, Ed.
The papers in this document follow the order of the meeting and consist of two guest lecturers and reports from four working groups; two topic group presentations are noted but not included. One lecture, delivered by Peter Hilton, discusses the nature of mathematics today and implications for mathematics teaching, while, in the other paper, Stephen I. Brown explores the nature of problem generation in the mathematics curriculum. Working group reports concern statistical thinking, training in diagnosis and remediation for teachers, mathematics and language, and the influence of computer science on the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. Topic groups heard presentations by Daniel Kahneman on intuitions and fallacies in reasoning about probability and by Tom Kieren on mathematics curriculum development in Canada. A list of participants is given. (MNS)
