“Technology and Innovation in Math Education”
Third National Workshop & Conference
Themes and Format
Two main themes proposed are:
Role of technology in teaching of mathematics
Innovative practices in teaching mathematics
We hope that TIME 2009, like Time 2005 and TIME 2007, will
serve a dual role: as a forum in which mathematics educators
and teachers will come together to discuss and to probe
major issues associated with the integration of technology
in mathematics teaching and learning, and as a place where
they can share their perspectives, personal experiences, and
innovative teaching practices.
The event will have
Invited one hour talks on the issue of technology in
mathematics education and innovative practices in math
education by experts.
Short 20-30 minute presentations by school/college teachers
on their existing innovative practices in teaching and
efforts in integrating technology in teaching of
Poster presentations on innovations in teaching, book
exhibition and software demonstrations.
Hand on workshops on the role and use of Hardware like
calculators and Computers, Tablet PCs, and software like
Dynamic Geometry , Maple, Mathematica, Mupad, and others
in mathematics education.
Workshops on recreational mathematics mental mathematics are
Locating and promoting mathematics talent at school and
Mathematics educators, teachers, schools / colleges are
invited to participate in the event.
If you are using technology in any form or are using an
innovative method to enhance teaching of mathematics, you
can request for a 20 minute slot for presentation of your
work. An abstract of the proposal indicating the topic and
objective should reach the convener latest by 30thth
August, 2009. If accepted, complete presentation should be
submitted by 30th October, 2009
You can also display your ideas on teaching mathematics by
participating in the poster presentations or displaying a
model. These will be displayed in the exhibition section.
