The International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) aims to:
- - Show what is happening in mathematics education worldwide, in terms of research as well as teaching practices.
- - Inform about the problems of mathematics education around the world.
- - Learn and benefit from recent advances in mathematics as a discipline.
In anticipation of ICME-11
Very exciting things have been happening. In the beginning, in 2004, during and following ICME-10 in Denmark, ICMI (see page 4) invited twenty-three members of the international community of mathematics education to constitute the International Program Committee (IPC) and embark on the quadrennial expedition called ICME, this would be the 11th edition. The Sociedad Matemática Mexicana (Mexican Mathematical Society), with the support of the Mexican Federal Governement via the Ministry of Education (SEP), had successfully bid to have ICME-11 take place in Monterrey, Mexico, in July 2008.
The International Program Committee (IPC) for ICME11 extends its warmest greetings to all readers of this First Announcement. We are pleased to inform you that planning for ICME 11 is well under way, bringing a wide array of specialists in Mathematics Education from all over the world to Monterrey (Mexico) in the Summer of 2008.
