IMMC Thematic Afternoon at ICME14 was Held Successfully
IMMC held a Thematic Activity entitled "Mathematical Modeling Inside and Outside Classrooms" at ICME14, the 14th International Congress on Mathematical Education (www.icme14.org ), in hybrid mode physically and remotely with support by LOC of ICME14 and Shanghai Experimental School's Center for Mathematical Modeling.
MATHEMATICAL MODELING INSIDE AND OUTSIDE CLASSROOMS
Organizer: Alfred Cheung and Solomon Garfunkel
15 July 2021
On-site venue: East China Normal University, Shanghai, China
Online Participation: ZOOM
Objectives and significance
(i) To promote teaching and learning of mathematical modelling as well as an innovative approach to mathematics education through modelling
(ii) To advance school teachers’ pedagogy in facilitating students’ learning of mathematical modeling and its application;
(iii) To promote students’ learning of mathematics, an important component of STEM, through experiencing mathematical modeling and its application.
This will promote participating students’ values, knowledge and skills for solving real world problems;
(iv) To promote STEM education in high schools through implementing mathematical modeling and its application.
(i) Reports and presentation: Awarded teams present their solution papers to the audience. They also share their experience in IMMC
and other mathematical modelling activities.
(ii) Demonstrations: Other participating teachers and students demonstrate their experience in mathematical modelling and its integration with STEM.
(iii) Discussions: Local Chinese school teachers and students discuss their pedagogy cases and projects with the audience.
Dr. Solomon Garfunkel, Chairman of IMMC Committee (International) and CEO of COMAP, delivered the opening speech. Awarded teams presented their solution papers to the participants at the thematic activity virtually or on the site. Teachers shared their experience in guiding students inside and outside classrooms with IMMC as practice activities. Prof. Yin Junfeng from Tongji University led the discussion among teachers and students in the activity. Prof. Yin made conclusion remarks finally.
