Proceedings of the 1982 Annual Meeting. Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, June 3-7, 1982).
Drost, Dale R., Ed.
Papers from the 1982 annual meeting of the Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group are organized similarly to the meeting, presenting materials from the lectures, working groups, topic groups and panel groups. One lecture, by Davis, discussed a philosophy of computation in relation to computing. Vergnaud lectured on cognitive and developmental psychology and research in mathematics education. Working group reports concerned the influence of computer science on undergraduate mathematics education, the application of research in mathematics education to teacher training programs, imagery and mathematics, and problem solving in the school curriculum. Appendices to the working group reports include reports or comments from individual members. The topic groups reported on women and mathematics and on educational uses of the history of mathematics. Panel groups considered identifying and developing mathematical talent and the organization of mathematical contests and summer camps. One special group reported on geometry. (MNS)
