  • International Commission on Mathematical Instruction ICMI STUDY-23 June

    3rd to 5th June 2015


    With a long history of mathematics theory and practice, Chinese community has a unique appeal to mathematics educators at the primary education level. Ancient Chinese invented computation tool (counting rod, abacus), computation procedures in SunZi Suanjing (孫子算經) A.D. 5 century (Lam & Ag, 1992), which are still used in current textbooks or classrooms in the world. In recent years, the outstanding performance of Chinese students in Shanghai in the OECD’s PISA mathematics assessment has resulted in much discussion among educators in the world. Macau SAR itself has also risen from the 15th in 2009 to 6th in 2013 in OECD’s PISA math assessment, an achievement that attests to the commitment of the Macau government and the society to providing the best education for its citizens. We believe that Chinese education practices under the influence of the Confucian educational heritage can provide a resource for new thinking in global mathematics education development relating to the whole number.





    The Faculty of Education of the University of Macau and the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau, Macau SAR (DSEJ; 澳門特別行政區教育暨青年局) are very pleased to co-host ICMI STUDY 23 conference in 2015 in Macau SAR, China.
