Systematic Co-Operation between Theory and Practice in Mathematics Education. Mini-Conference at ICME 5. Topic Area Research and Teaching (Adelaide, Australia, August 25-29, 1984).
Christiansen, Bent; And Others
A miniconference (consisting of four 60-minute sessions) was organized to contribute to the exploration of frames, forms, and contents of systematic cooperation and interaction between the researcher and teacher in the classroom. These proceedings of the conference include descriptions of the organization, purpose, and background of the conference, abstracts of presentations of six case studies, and a statement of some major questions which were presented for discussion at the concluding panel debate. The document contains five invited papers: (1) "Clinical Interviews Emmbedded in the 'Philosophy of Teaching Units'-A Means of Developing Teachers' Attitudes and Skills" (Erich C. Wittmann); (2) "Developmental Research on Paper and in Action" (Piet Verstappen); (3) "Working with Teachers to Implement a Problem Solving Approach with Pupils Aged 9-13 Years" (Leone Burton); (4) "Research and Teacher Training: Co-operative Development of Teaching Materials for Stochastics in Grades 5/6" (Gerd von Harten); and (5) "L'Enseignement de l'Enumeration: Etude de deux problemes pratiques et fondamentaux dans le cadre de la theorie des situations et du contrat didactique" (Guy Brousseau). The final part of the report contains the concluding plenary debate on the systematic cooperation between theory and practice in mathematics education. (JN)
