Konferenz: The 12th International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME-12).
Seoul, Südkorea.
Internet: The 12th International Congress on Mathematical Education

Termin: 8. - 15. Juli 2012

## Kurzbeschreibung

The International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) is held every four years under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI). It is, however, planned and organized by separate committees, which operate independently of the ICMI. The aim of the Congress is to present the current states of and trends in mathematics education research and in the practice of mathematics teaching at all levels. The Congress will gather a broad spectrum of participants such as researchers in mathematics education, teacher educators, practicing teachers, mathematicians, and others interested in mathematics education.
