MEC 21 - 12th International Conference of The Mathematics Education into the 21st Century Project
Konferenz: 12th International Conference of The Mathematics Education into the 21st Century Project . Herceg Novi, Montenegro. Internet: 12th International Conference of The Mathematics Education into the 21st Century Project
Termin: 21. - 26. September 2014
The Mathematics Education for the Future Project warmly welcomes you to our 12th International Conference on: The Future of Mathematics Education in a Connected World, to be held from Sep-21-26-2014, overlooking the most favoured and beautiful bay along the Balkan Adriatic coast.
The Mathematics Education for the Future Project serves as an international forum for both researchers and teachers. Innovation is our major objective and this includes special interests such as: maths for living, humanizing maths education, equity and ethno-mathematics, the effective use of new educational technology in the classroom, adopting new paradigms, etc. Our accumulated experiences are not only represented in our UNESCO handbook and previous conference proceedings but also in 40 years of research-in-action - including the vast didactic innovations of SMP and other UK projects in the 1960s and 1970s, national initiatives in Germany, Holland, Scandinavia, Australia, Brazil, etc in the 1970s and 1980s, and many other major innovative projects throughout the world. Our Project has tried to learn as much as possible from many people, with the aim of implementing theIR innovative ideas in the teaching of mathematics, science, statistics and informatics in schools and higher education. The scientific underpinning of our project’s work owes much to the seminal works of creative thinkers such as Polya, Kuhn, Lakatos, Wittgenstein, Freire and D’Ambrosio.

The Major Goal of this Montenegro Conference is to help turn Dreams into Reality!
- To support communication and collaboration - to put teachers and researchers in contact for their mutual benefit.
- To present and publish research papers and also significant new ideas and classroom experiences from teachers.
- To share innovative and creative ideas for effecting reform in the areas of: educational research, in teaching and learning, educational technology, curriculum development, mathematics teachers’ preparation and development, school organization and policy, classroom practices and issues of equity and ethno-mathematics
- To initiate new and creative work to help solve endemic problems in education.

We welcome papers and workshops that deal with all aspects of innovation in mathematics, statistics, science and computer education, especially those helping to make these subjects more "alive", more "realistic" and more "accessible" to students in the future. We have a very open policy to accept in the programme not only peer-refereed papers, but also workshops and contributions from teachers discussing innovative work in their schools. Possible topics for a paper or workshop would be::
- problem solving and modelling
- use of technology
- dealing with cultural differences
- overcoming gender and social barriers
- improving the curriculum
- teacher preparation and ongoing in-service work
- policy initiatives
- school organization and classroom practices
- using statistics in everyday life
- effectively utilizing new paradigms in teaching and learning
- rich learning tasks
- applications of mathematics in the real world
- the use of mathematics in the sciences and in informatics
