Sixth Conference of European Research in Mathematics Education
Konferenz: Sixth Conference of European Research in Mathematics Education (CERME 6). Lyon, Frankreich.
Termin: 28.1.2009 - 1.2.2009.
von der Webseite: CERME is a Congress designed to foster a communicative spirit. It deliberately and distinctively moves away from research presentations by individuals towards collaborative group work. Its main feature is a number of thematic groups whose members will work together in a common research area. Researchers wishing to present a paper at the Congress should submit the paper to one of these groups. In addition to the Thematic Groups, there will be plenary sessions with opportunity to debate and to communicate the work of each group to other participants; poster sessions for new researchers, and others, to communicate their work and gain feedback; and policy and purpose sessions to negotiate the work and directions of ERME.
