Proceedings of the China-Japan-U.S. Seminar on Mathematical Education.

Zhang, Dianzhou, Ed.; And Others

This document contains the proceedings of the China-Japan-U.S. Seminar on Mathematical Education that was held in 1993 in China. The focus of the Seminar was problem solving in mathematics education. The main purposes of the seminar were: to examine the present states of problem solving in school mathematics in China, Japan, and the U.S.; to explore classroom practices in problem solving; to examine existing data concerning problem solving in mathematics education research; to explore teacher training aspects of problem solving in school mathematics; and to provide a context in which scholars from the three countries could meet, talk, and pursue mutual interests and future interaction. Presentations include: (1) "Learning How to Integrate Problem Solving Into Mathematics Teaching" (Jerry Becker); (2) "Mathematics Education in Japan-Some Findings From the Results of the IEA Study" (Toshio Sawada); (3) "Some Remarks on Problem Solving" (Changping Chen); (4) "How to Link Affective and Cognitive Aspects in the Mathematics Class-Comparison of Three Teaching Trials on Problem Solving" (Nobuhiko Nohda); (5) "Critical Issues in Problem Solving Instruction in Mathematics" (Douglas Grouws); (6) "An Overview on Mathematical Problem Solving in China" (Dianzhou Zhang); (7) "Diversity, Tools, and New Approaches to Teaching Functions" (Jere Confrey); (8) "Mathematical Open-Ended Problems in China" (Zaiping Dai); (9) "The Place of Problem Solving in U.S. Mathematics Education K-12 Reform: A Preliminary Glimpse" (Joan Ferrini-Mundy and Loren Johnson); (10) "On Mathematics Education in Japan" (Yoshishige Sugiyama); (11) "Observations on China's Mathematics Education as Influenced by Its Traditional Culture" (Jun Li and Changping Chen); (12) "Outline of Textbook Authorization in Japan" (Toshiaki Sakama); (13) "Problem Solving and Lesson Reviewing-A CAI Teaching Approach" (Shen Yu, Pengyuan Wang, and Zhong Dai); (14) "Changing the Elementary Mathematics Curriculum: Obstacles and Challenges" (Susan Russell); (15) "On the Method of Guiding Exploration" (Benshun Xu and Jiying Li); (16) "Mathematical Problem Solving" (Yoshihiko Hashimoto); (17) "On the Problem Solving Teaching Pattern in China" (Xiaoming Yuan); (18) "High Achievement Versus Rigidity: Japanese Students' Thinking on Division of Fractions" (Yoshinori Shimizu); (19) "Revision of the Course of Study for Student Guidance in High Schools" (Azuma Nagano); (20) "Computer Literacy in Japanese High School Mathematics: Compare the Present-Day Mathematics Textbook with the Revised Math Textbook" (Isamu Kikuchi); (21) "On School Mathematics Curriculum Design" (Ersheng Ding); (22) "A Survey of Doing Sums on a Mental Abacus" (Dexiang Tang); and (23) "The Mathematics Olympiad and Mathematics Education in Qingdao, China" (Guoqing Guo).
