The thematic scope of ICHME-8 includes, among others:

  • methodology of the research in the history of mathematics education,
  • transmission and reception of new educational ideas in mathematics education,
  • the history of mathematics education and the history of mathematics: connections and mutual influences,
  • actors and contributors in mathematics education,
  • development of mathematics education in specific countries,
  • development and changes in mathematical content within a curriculum and in the form of its presentation,
  • mathematics education of groups historically underserved in education,
  • mathematics teacher education,
  • mathematics textbooks and other educational resources,
  • reforms in mathematics education.

 

There will be three forms of active participation in the conference: long presentations (40 min.), short presentations (20 min.) and posters. All activities should be prepared in English.

 

Submission Guidelines:

  • only one submission per Participant is allowed,
  • the submission must include the title of the presentation and abstract with selected bibliography,
  • the abstract with the selected bibliography should contain a total of max. 500 words,
  • the abstract must include an explanation of why the proposed presentation constitutes a significant contribution to research on the history of mathematics education,
  • the submission (in English) should be sent as a Microsoft Word document by 1 March 2024 to the following e-mail address: ichme8@gmail.com.

 

The review process will determine in which activity a given submission will be presented. The results of the review will be announced by 31 March 2024.
