Proceedings of the Nordic Conference on Mathematics Teaching (NORMA-94) Lahti 1994. Research Report 141.

Pehkonen, Erkki, Ed.

This report contains papers from the Nordic Conference on Mathematics Teaching (NORMA-94). The first three papers are plenary talks aimed at giving the participants an opportunity to form a coherent view of the new theories of learning. The themes of the paper sessions addressed a variety of topics on different levels from elementary school to university. There were also workshops in which the practical solutions of teaching were discussed in detail. Poster sessions gave other insights into teaching practice. Papers include: (1) "The Use of Concrete Material as a Means To Support the Learning of Mathematics" (Joop van Dormolen); (2) "Constructing Mathematics, Learning and Teaching" (Barbara Jaworski); (3) "Constructive Teaching in Mathematics" (Jarkko Leino); (4) "Control Activities at Problem Solving" (Andras Ambrus); (5) "Interactive Exercises as a Part of Mathematical Hypermedia" (Kostadin Antchev, Seppo Pohjolainen, and Jari Multisilta); (6) "Assessment in Mathematics from a Social Constructivist Viewpoint" (Ole Bjorkqvist); (7) "Responsibility for Own Learning in Mathematics" (Trygve Breiteig); (8) "A Comparison of School Leaving Math Exams" (Gard Brekke and Algirdas Zabulionis); (8) "The General Education of Children in Mathematics Lessons" (Gunter Graumann); (9) "Gender and Mathematics Education. Theory into Practice" (Barbro Grevholm); (10) "The Geometry behind the Cupola of the Cathedral of Florence" (Ivan Tafteberg Jakobsen); (11) "Theory into Practice of Teaching Mathematics" (Tunde Kantor); (12) "A Heuristic Alternative To Formalistic Teaching in School Geometry: Theoretical Scrutiny" (Tapio Keranto); (13) "DiffEqLab A MATLAB Based Package for Studying Ordinary Differential Equations" (Simo K.
