CERME 10, Tenth Congress of the European Society for Research in Mathematics Education that will be hosted by the Institute of Education, Dublin City University. It will take place at Croke Park from 1st to 5th February, 2017.
Dublin has a rich mathematical heritage being the birthplace of mathematicians such as William Rowan Hamilton (who ‘liberated’ algebra from commutativity with his discovery of quaternions) and John Lighton Synge (one of the first to study black holes in general relativity). Austrian theoretical physicist, Erwin Schrödinger (inventor of the wave equation of quantum mechanics) lived and worked in Dublin for 17 years. Another Dubliner, Bram Stoker, although he graduated in mathematics, is better known as the author of the Gothic novel, Dracula! Dublin’s reputation as a friendly city is well deserved, not least in the cosy atmosphere of its many pubs where good traditional Irish music is a popular attraction.
CERME 10 will promote the development of mathematics education through intellectual communication and cooperation in the context of thematic working groups, plenaries, poster sessions and congenial interactions.
