YERME Day 2017

The YERME Day (for Young Researchers in ERME) will be held on Tuesday 31st January and Wednesday 1st February, one day before CERME 10. It will take place in the Institute of Education on the St Patrick’s Campus of Dublin City University.

YERME Day provides an opportunity for participants to meet key European researchers in mathematics education, developing an understanding of their work and methodological approaches. In addition, it constitutes an important networking opportunity to meet young researchers from other countries, with common research interest. The program foresees several plenary presentations, three working groups (WGs) and three discussion groups (DGs). These group sessions, each of three hours’ duration, will be led by ERME board members as well as key scholars in European mathematics education from different academic traditions.
