MES-2019

10th International Conference of Mathematics Education and Society

Mon, 28 Jan 2019 – Sat, 02 Feb 2019

Mathematics Education and Society conferences aim at bringing together mathematics educators from around the world to provide such a forum, as well as to offer a platform on which to build future collaborative activity. It is expected that topics discussed will be wide-ranging. It is also expected that all issues will have a clear underpinning in social/political/cultural/ethical themes. The general topics of the conference are:

  • Politics of Mathematics Education


 

  • Cultural and Social Aspects of Teaching and Learning Mathematics


 

  • Sociology of Mathematics and Mathematics Education


 

  • Alternative Research Methodologies in Mathematics Education


 

  • Histories and Philosophies in Mathematics Education

The concerns of Mathematics Education and Society are of particular importance to countries like India which have a multitude of hierarchies and diversities. India is at once an ancient civilization with a rich history of mathematics and a postcolonial state struggling to reestablish itself in the terms set by colonizer and now the globalizing west. It has a vast linguistic diversity, several religions, many castes and tribes, and a huge cultural, regional and economic diversity all of which privilege some and marginalize large sections of the learners in complex ways. Given this, there is an urgent need to acknowledge and enquire into the socio-political, historical, cultural, and ethical dimensions of mathematics education in the Indian context. It is hoped that MES10 will spark such an engagement not just in India but in other countries in Asia and abroad which do not have a strong tradition of such an engagement.
