The theme of EARCOME 7 is “In Pursuit of Quality Mathematics Education for All.”
This resonates with the need for good quality mathematics education to be inclusive of all students regardless of their gender, background and contexts.
EARCOME 7 will consist of the following activities: Plenary Lectures (PL), Regular Lectures (RL), Topic Study Groups (TSG), Workshops (W), Special Sharing Groups (SSG), Plenary Panel Discussion (PD) and Poster Presentations (PP).
The TSG themes are:
TSG 1: Quality Mathematics Curriculum and Materials
TSG 2: Quality Mathematics Classroom Practices
TSG 3: Quality Mathematics Assessment
TSG 4: Quality Mathematics Teacher Education and Development
TSG 5: Quality Use of ICT in Mathematics
TSG 6: Quality Use of Language and Discourse in Mathematics
TSG 7: Quality Early Childhood and Lower Primary Mathematics Education
