Pehkonen, Erkki, Ed.
This report contains papers given in the third workshop on the Current State of Research on Mathematical Beliefs. No plenary talks were given. The presentations were categorized into the subjects of pupil beliefs and teacher beliefs. The concept of belief in this workshop also refers to conceptions, views, and attitudes. Pupils' beliefs and their connections to mathematics learning were mainly addressed within the framework of comprehensive school where the central theme seemed to be the development of pupils' beliefs in school. The international comparison was also a topic of research. In the case of teachers' beliefs, the central field of interest was the development of student teachers' beliefs. Papers include: (1) "Investigation of Motivation in Hungary" (Andras Ambrus); (2)"Mathematics versus Computer Science: Teachers' Views on Teacher Roles and the Relations of Both Subjects" (Peter Berger); (3) "A Theoretical Framework for Teachers' Conceptions" (Fulvia Furinghetti); (4) "Beliefs of Pupils and First Year Students about Mathematics Education" (Gunter Graumann); (5) "Feminine Structures in Mathematical Beliefs and Performances" (Markku Hannula and Marja-Liisa Malmivuori); (6) "Research Project: Development of Pupils Mathematical Beliefs" (Markku Hannula, Marja-Liisa Malmivuori, and Erkki Pehkonen); (7) "Mathematical Beliefs of Eighth-Graders: What is Mathematics?" (Kirsti Hoskonen); (8) "Prospective Teachers' Math Views and Educational Memories" (Sinikka Lindgren); (9) "Causes of Being Bad in Mathematics as Seen by Pupils of the German Gymnasium" (Christoph Oster); (10) "Some Findings in the International Comparison of Pupils' Mathematical Views" (Erkki Pehkonen); (11) "Some Observations Concerning Pupils' Views on Mathematics Teaching in Finland and Tatarstan (Russia)" (Erkki Pehkonen and Ildar S. Safuanov); (12) "Changing Pre-Service Teachers Attitudes towards Mathematics" (George Philippou and Constantinos Christou); and (13) "Change in Mathematical Views of First Year University Students" (Gunter Torner and Iris Kalesse).
