Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Education, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice together with Society of Mathematics Teachers (SUMA JČMF) organize the 6th conference

The Use of Computers in Mathematics Education

November 7 – 9, 2013
(conference information leaflet in pdf)

The conference „The Use of Computers in Mathematics Education“ is a biennial conference. It gives the participants (mathematics teachers across different school levels, educational experts and teacher educators) the opportunity to share their experience with the use of informational technologies in mathematics education. The conference is organized in the form of presentations, workshops and plenary lectures.

Conference topics

  • the role of a computer in mathematics education,
  • influence of the use of computers on the educational content,
  • the role of a teacher in the computer assisted education,
  • influence of the use of computers on the development of the mathematical and financial literacy.

The conference topics will be discussed in the following sections:

  1. General issues of the use of computers in mathematics education
  2. Dynamic geometry systems in mathematics education (Cabri, Cinderella, GeoGebra, …)
  3. Computer algebra systems in mathematics education (Maple, Mathematica, wxMaxima…)
  4. Other mathematical software and smart boards in application of mathematics (Financial mathematics, STEM, etc.).

During the conference, workshops on the use of particular mathematical software (e.g. GeoGebra, wxMaxima) will be organized.

Plenary Lectures

One of the three plenary lectures, entitled “Sketchometry and JSXGraph – Dynamic Geometry for mobile devices”, will be given in English by prof. Dr. Alfred Wassermann from Universität Bayreuth. The remaining plenary lectures will be given by prof. RNDr. Milan Hejný, CSc. (Charles University in Prague) and RNDr. Libuše Samková, Ph.D. (University of South Bohemia) in Czech.
