14th International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematical Modelling and Applications
Konferenz: 14th International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA 14). Hamburg, Deutschland.
Termin: 27.7.2009 - 31.7.2009.
The aim of the conference of the International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications is to provide a forum for the presentation and exchange of information, experiences, and ideas relating to the teaching, learning and assessment of mathematical modelling, mathematical models and applications of mathematics at primary, secondary and tertiary level.
The following issues will be tackled by a variety of activities:
Pedagogical issues, such as the understanding of modelling, promotion of modelling competencies, cognitive aspects Assessment of modelling activities in school and universities; Connections to industrial or commercial practice, mathematics at the workplace; Influences of technology; Cross-cultural aspects and international studies
