Major Trends from ICME IV: A Southeast Asian Perspective

  • Bienvenedo Nebres


In our work in mathematics education in Southeast Asia, we have become aware that there is a dual aspect to our relationship with developments in mathematical education in the advanced countries. On the one hand, we are aware of the great differences in our situation (thus there is need of great care in adapting to new trends); on the other hand, we cannot help but be affected by new developments in the West (because our textbooks are adapted from the West, and our young mathematicians are trained there).
