The idea of the ICMI Study 13 is outlined as follows: Education in any social environment is influenced in many ways by the traditions of these environments. This study brings together leading experts to research and report on mathematics education in a global context. Mathematics education faces a split phenomenon of difference and correspondence. A study attempting a comparison between mathematics education in different traditions will be helpful to understanding this phenomenon.
Under the auspices of the International Commission for Mathematical Instruction, Springer is the publisher of all Study Reports. ICMI Study 13 brings together leading experts from around the world to research and report on mathematics education in a global context
