CIAEM: INTER-AMERICAN COMMITTEE ON MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Location: C: turquoise, Main Building, lecture hall B
Organisers: Angel Ruiz* (University of Costa Rica), Diane Briars, Matt Larson (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics), Patrick Rick Scott (U.S. Board on International Scientific Organizations)
How can we effectively build the student learning presented in national curricular principles? What strategies and perspectives should guide teacher actions to ensure student learning? What sort of teacher professional development can support needed actions? These concerns which are so central to Mathematics Education are addressed by many theoretical results and experiences. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM, 2014) recently published “Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All” which presents guidelines for guaranteeing mathematical success for all students. Similar strategies and perspectives support the implementation of curricular reform in Mathematics Education for elementary and secondary schools in Costa Rica.
C.I.E.A.E.M. COMMISSION INTERNATIONALE POUR L’ÉTUDE ET L’AMÉLIORATION DE L’ENSEIGNEMENT DES MATHÉMATIQUES

Organisers: Peter Appelbaum* (Arcadia University), Charoula Stathopoulou (University of Thessaly), Gilles Aldon (ENS Lyon), Uwe Gellert (Freie Universität Berlin), Fernando Hitt (Université du Québec à Montréal), Christina Sabena (Università di Torino)
The CIEAEM session aims at communicating current and future activities of CIEAEM to the mathematics education community. Just before ICME-13, CIEAEM will have held its 68th annual meeting. On that meeting, the contributions to research and educational practice of CIEAEM during the last 10 years or so will be synthesised and discussed under the headings of “Integration of theory and practice and/or/versus (evidence-based) research as a service to practice”, “Mathematisation and the role of mathematical model(ling)s”, “Towards a post-PISA curriculum?”, and “How can research/CIEAEM learn from the inside of the classroom?”. The presentation of CIEAEM at ICME-13 will offer insight into the unique style of communication during CIEAEM conferences, which are characterised by their ample space for collaborative discussion.
ERME: EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Location: K: purple, Law Building, lecture hall
Organisers: Viviane Durand-Guerrier (University of Montpellier), Cristina Sabena* (University of Torino), Stefan Zehetmeier (University of Klagenfurt), Despina Potari (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), Miguel Ribeiro (University of Klagenfurt)
ERME has been established for promoting communication, cooperation and collaboration among European researchers (and increasingly with neighbor countries of Europe). The core of the ERME research activities is organized within in the so-called Thematic Working Groups, which meet bi-annually at the Congress of ERME. To present current developments and issues of research within ERME, a collaboration of three Thematic Working Groups concerned with the development and research of mathematics teachers will give insights into their work. The study of mathematics teacher education and professional development has been a central focus of research during the last decades and has been focused also within ERME activities. Research programs focused on topics like reflection, collaboration, or teachers’ professional growth. In particular, models and programs of professional development, as well as their respective contents, methods, and impacts were described and analysed. Research increasingly focused not only on the participating teachers, but also on the role of teacher educators and academic researchers.
ERME/YERME: YOUNG RESEARCHERS IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Location: I: blue, Philosophical Tower, lecture hall E
Organisers: Susanne Prediger (TU Dortmund), Susanne Schnell (University of Cologne), Jason Cooper (Weizmann Institute), Raja Herold* (University Duisburg-Essen), Angel Mizzi (University Duisburg-Essen)
YERME is the young researcher association of ERME, which is specifically engaged in supporting early career researchers. Due to the interest in young researchers, the work and organization of YERME will be presented and complemented with exchanging experiences between the participants. This session is prepared by YERME with support from the German Young Researchers Group.
HPM: INTERNATIONAL STUDY GROUP ON THE RELATIONS BETWEEN HISTORY AND PEDAGOGY OF MATHEMATICS
Location: E: mint, Economical Building, lecture hall B
Organisers: Luis Radford* (Laurentian University), Fulvia Furinghetti (Università di Genova), Kathleen Clark (Florida State University)
In the first part of this presentation, we offer an overview of HPM’s aims and current structure as well as some of the research lines that have been recently followed. In the second part, we present an outline of the historical roots of HPM. In the third part, we show a concrete example of HPM research inquiry.
ICTMA: INTERNATIONAL STUDY GROUP FOR MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND APPLICATIONS
Location: C: turquoise, Main Building, lecture hall C
Presenters: Gloria Ann Stillman*, Jill Brown (Australian Catholic University), Henry Pollak (Teachers College Columbia University), Helena Wessels (Stellenbosch University)
The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications has been in existence since 1983. It meets biennially, in odd numbered years. The mission of the ICTMA is to promote Applications and Modelling in all areas of mathematics education – primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. The academic focus encompasses themes such as the design and delivery of programs, analysis of modelling competencies and student performance, and the development and improvement of effective methods of assessment. A developing focus on research has recognised the importance of establishing a robust knowledge base from which to address problems that continue to emerge. From the outset ICTMA adopted the position that it should maintain the integrity of its focus, which is about the teaching of mathematical modelling and applications, where teaching is interpreted broadly to incorporate related educational matters such as curriculum, assessment, and evaluation. The purpose of this session is to induct those who are interested into current activities of the organisation.
IOWME: INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF WOMEN AND MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Location: C: turquoise, Main Building, lecture hall J
Organisers: Eva Norén*, Lisa Bjorklund Boistrup* (Stockholm University, Tamsin Meaney (Bergen University College), Yvette Solomon (Manchester Metropolitan University), Moneoang Leshota (National University of Lesotho)
The International Organization of Women and Mathematics Education is an international network of individuals and groups who share a commitment to achieving equity in education and who are interested in the links between gender and the teaching and learning of mathematics. In our meeting at ICME 13 we will have three presentations with researchers from different parts of the world giving perspectives on women, girls and mathematics education.
MCG: INTERNATIONAL GROUP FOR MATHEMATICAL CREATIVITY AND GIFTEDNESS
Location: D: yellow, West Wing Building, room 221
Organisers: Roza Leikin* (University of Haifa), Linda Sheffield (Northern Kentucky University), Marianne Nolte (University of Hamburg)
The purpose of MCG is to bring together mathematics educators, mathematicians, researchers, and others who are interested in nurturing and supporting the development of mathematical creativity and the realization of mathematical promise and mathematical giftedness, promoting the improvement of teaching and learning mathematics, and widening students’ abilities to apply mathematical knowledge in innovative and creative ways. The main goals of the group are to encourage research concerning the discovery, nurture and support of mathematical creativity, giftedness, talent and promise for all students, support investigation and dissemination of information on the role of teacher knowledge and education, educational systems, and cultural aspects related to the development of mathematical creativity and promise stimulate national and international activities to further the aims of the Group. At the MCG meeting the president’s report on the previous four years will be presented. The participants will be invited to discuss possible directions for the future development of the group. All the participants of the session will be encouraged to participate in a creative mathematical activity.
MERGA: MATHEMATICS EDUCATION RESEARCH GROUP OF AUSTRALASIA
Location: E: mint, Economical Building, lecture hall A
Organisers: Tom Lowrie* (University of Canberra), Jennifer Way (University of Sydney)
This session showcases the journals and conferences of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA). A feature will be the book-launch of the ninth edition of the 4-yearly review of ‘Research in Mathematics Education in Australasia 2012-2015’ published by Springer. Delegates are invited to join us to celebrate the research achievements and dissemination activities of the Australasian mathematics education research community.
PME: INTERNATIONAL GROUP FOR THE PSYCHOLOGY OF MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
Location: C: turquoise, Main Building, lecture hall A
Presenters: Helen Forgasz (Monash University), Lulu Healy (Anhanguera University of São Paulo), Barbara Jaworski (Loughborough University), Peter Liljedahl (Simon Fraser University), Mamokgethi Setati Phakeng (University of Cape Town), Michal Tabach* (Tel-Aviv University), Wim Van Dooren (University of Leuven)
The aim of the presentation is to allow researchers interested in mathematics education, who are not familiar with PME to learn about the aims, structure, and activities of the organisation. The session will also allow participants to gain a sense of the depth and breadth of research in mathematics education of interest to PME members. Each year during the PME conference, there is one plenary session consisting of a panel of researchers debating a ‘hot topic’ related to research in mathematics education. The panel topic is usually closely linked to the theme of the annual conference, and is led by an expert researcher in the field. In the ICME session, the focus will be on the mathematics education issues that were debated at the PME plenary panel sessions in the last four years. The speakers include the four panel leaders who will each present a short summary of the panel they convened. In addition, three PME officers – president, vice president and secretary – will communicate about PME activities more generally.
