In the present issue of this Bulletin you will find the Discussion Document for the forthcoming ICMI Study on The Teaching and Learning of Mathematics at University Level, the study conference of which is going to be held in Singapore in December 1998. In the previous issue, No. 42 of June 1997, the Discussion Document for the ICMI Study on The role of the History of Mathematics in the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics was published. The corresponding study conference will take place in Luminy, France, in April 1998. The resulting ICMI Study volumes are expected to appear at the beginning of the next century. Further studies are under initial planning for the last years of this millennium.
With respect to recent ICMI Studies, the Study volumes on What is Research in Mathematics Education and What Are Its Results?, edited by Carmelo Mammana and Vinicio Villani, and Perspectives on the Teaching of Geometry for the 21st Century, edited by Jeremy Kilpatrick and Anna Sierpinska, went to the publisher, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht the Netherlands, a few months ago. The books will appear early in 1998.
Previous ICMI Study volumes, also published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, are Investigations into Assessment in Mathematics Education (1993), Cases of Assessmentment in Mathematics Education (1993), both edited by Mogens Niss, and Towards Gender Equity in Mathematics Education (1996), edited by Gila Hanna.
Each of these Studies can by purchased by individuals at a considerably reduced rate if ordered from Kluwer through ICMI. For further information please contact the ICMI Secretariat at the address indicated in this Bulletin.
