Presentation of YESS 9


The ERME Board, YERME and the Local Organisers are happy to invite PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and
master students in mathematics education and others entering mathematics education research to take part in the Ninth
YERME Summer School (YESS-9).
In line with the ERME Manifesto, the aims of the Summer School are:

  • to let people from different countries meet and establish a friendly and cooperative style of work in the field of mathematics education research;
  • to let people compare and integrate their preparation in the field of mathematics education research in a peer discussion climate with the help of highly qualified experts from various research areas;
  • to let people present their research ideas, theoretical thoughts, methodological approaches or problems, and preliminary research results, in order to get suggestions (from other participants and experts) about possible developments, different perspectives, etc. and open the way to possible connections with nearby research projects and co-operation with researchers in other countries.

PERIOD: The school begins on August 20th morning and finishes on August 25th evening, 2018 (five and a half days of work plus one intermediate half-day for excursion).
We scheduled August 19th and 26th for arrival-registration and for departure, respectively.

PLACE: The summer school takes place on the Triolet Campus of the University of Montpellier, and is organized by the DEMA Team of the Institut Montpellièrain Alexander Grothendieck, Université de Montpellier.

ACCOMMODATION AND CONFERENCE FEES: An all-inclusive 7 days full-board accommodation (from August 19th, afternoon, to August 26th, morning) is offered.
The conference fee will be between 350€ and 400€. This fee will include accommodation with breakfast, all meals and
coffee/tea as well as a half-day excursion.
There will be a possibility for some scholarships for participants from European and non-European countries who
demonstrate the need for such support (depending on ERME contribution and other contributions). Allocation will be
decided according to the needs and the funds available. In principle, it is expected that participants will first seek support
from funding organisations in their own country or their countries of study.



TOPICS:The proposed topics for the 2018 Summer School are:

  1. Teacher knowledge and practice; teacher education and professional development.
  2. Teaching and learning mathematics at primary level and transition with secondary level.
  3. Teaching and learning mathematics at secondary and advanced levels.
  4. Information technologies in mathematics teaching and learning.
  5. Proof, proving, problem solving and modelling in mathematics education.
  6. Theoretical perspectives, linguistic and representational aspects of teaching and learning mathematics.

The six working groups will be chaired by leading experts in mathematics education. In addition, the experts will give
lectures (see the programme above).
