# Changing the Culture 2004

## Topic

Mathematics Curriculum: Could Less be More?

## Details

The 7th Annual Changing the Culture Conference, organized and sponsored by the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, will again bring together mathematicians, mathematics educators and school teachers from all levels, to work together towards improving teaching of mathematics at all levels.

The focus of this year's conference will be school mathematics curriculum, and students' preparation for university courses, including Calculus and Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers.

The problem of overloaded and over engineered curriculum was one of the key issues identified at the Canadian Forum on School Mathematics, held May 16 - 18th, 2003, in Montreal (click here for more details). This topic was further discussed at the Education Session of the CMS Winter 2003 meeting in Vancouver (for the discussion paper, click here). At this conference, we will try to look at what we all can do to improve the situation.
