Adequate mathematics courses in teacher training
Goals and concepts under heterogenous conditions
Date: March, 24th & 25th 2017 (Fr. 14:00 to Sa. 17:00)
Location: Mathematisches Institut Göttingen, Bunsenstr. 3-5, 37073 Göttingen, Germany
Background: The mathematics education of teachers is very heterogenous among the federal states in Germany. For example the credit points for the mathematics part of secondary school teacher training range from 63 to 105. So the question for the real demand in teacher training arises.
Conference goal: In the framework of the conference we want to discuss well-proven and new ideas and concepts to further develop the mathematics part of teacher training. Contributions will be published as conference proceedings.
Participants: The conference adresses stakeholders in mathematics teacher training as well as school teachers of all types of schools.
Sections and workshops
Evening program: Poster exhibition and short talks about innovative projects for teacher training, (for example project KLEIN with 3D-printing of models of the Göttingen collection of mathematical models and instruments).
This is the 5th conference since 2011 organized by the "Gemeinsame Kommission Lehrerbildung", a joined commission of the Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung (DMV), the Society of Didactics of Mathematics (GDM) and the Verband zur Förderung des MINT-Unterrichts (MNU).
