International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness (MCG) is an exciting topic that was overlooked in school education and in the educational research for a long time.
The International Group for MCG brings together mathematics educators, mathematicians, researchers, and others who are inspired to nurture and support the development of mathematical creativity in all and the realization of mathematical promise and mathematical giftedness.
The purpose of the group is to bring together mathematics educators, mathematicians, researchers, and others who are interested in nurturing and supporting the development of mathematical creativity and the realization of mathematical promise and mathematical giftedness, promoting the improvement of teaching and learning mathematics, and widening students’ abilities to apply mathematical knowledge in innovative and creative ways. The work of the Group will concentrate on distinct but interrelated domains such as:
mathematical creativity for all students, from all backgrounds, and of all ages,
mathematical creativity, aptitude, and achievement,
mathematical giftedness, talent and promise,
mathematical creativity for individuals or teams, inside or outside the classroom,
Our next conference will be held in Bloemfontein, South Africa:
MCG 13 (Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness Conference)
February 20-23, 2024
(announcement to come soon)
For further events please see our newsletter.
MCG (International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness) is affiliated with ICMI (the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction)
