INTRODUCTION

Mathematics education and culture are inseparable. The East Asian nations are made up of diverse cultural groups. However, these nations share similar aspects of culture such as education system and cultural beliefs about education. This conference which embraces the cultures of both East Asia and South East Asia is especially significant in celebrating differences and yet finding common ideas and issues for discussion and exchange.

 

The ICME-East Asia Regional Conference series on mathematics education was first held in 1998 (Korea), the second in 2003 (Singapore) and the third in 2005 (Shanghai, China). Universiti Sains Malaysia will hold the 4th EARCOME in 2007 in Penang, Malaysia.

 

 

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the conference are to provide a forum for mathematics educators, teachers and graduate students from the region and beyond to discuss issues, exchange ideas and to present their research findings pertaining to mathematics education.
