National Teacher Education Mathematics Conference

in Collaboration with the

NCGC 2007

The 3rd National Conference on Graphing Calculators (NCGC 2007)


1-4 April 2008 &diams Grand Seasons Hotel, Kuala Lumpur


INTRODUCTION. Every educationist has his or her own expertise and experience in specific fields. Sharing these expertise and experience with others would enrich everyone. Opportunity for sharing is limited during working hours. Hence, efforts should be made to provide the opportunity for sharing knowledge and experiences. A national level Mathematics Conference is a means of providing the opportunity for sharing expertise and experience. Through intellectual collaboration, everyone would benefit and be able to face effectively the challenges in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. The aim of the National Teacher Education Mathematics Conference in collaboration with the Third National Graphing Calculator Conference is to provide the opportunity for sharing knowledge and experiences to enhance professional development among Mathematics educationist.
