DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Chunxia Qi (Beijing Normal Unversity)\nIn the last d
ecade，project-based learning (PBL) has been increasingly applied in disc
ipline education\; However\, there is really few PBL application research
has been applied in mathematics education. Therefore\, our team have conti
nuously conducted theoretical and practical researches on PBL application
and developed PBL textbook during the past five years.\n\nOur theoretical
research mainly explored how to apply PBL philosophy in mathematics textbo
ok and its possible effect. Firstly\, we clarified the standards for imple
mentation and evaluation of PBL textbook\; Secondly\, we concluded the lea
rning model of PBL textbook\; Thirdly\, we clarified the application path\
, influence effect and challenges of PBL textbook\; Fourthly we standardiz
ed the general path of project-based textbook design.\n\nPractically\, we
mainly explored the textbook development and instruction of PBL. First of
all\, we clarified the functions and roles\, general layout\, as well as d
esign principles of project-based textbook in mathematics\, which provided
a unified standard for the follow-up systematic design. Secondly\, based
on the current curriculum standards and textbooks\, we systematically deve
loped project-based mathematics textbook in middle school，which has the
following features: 1) design project theme based on key concepts\; 2) Tak
e the task implementation as the overt plot while the knowledge developmen
t as the covert plot\; 3) Pay attention to the authenticity of situation t
hat allowed students to immersed in\; 4) Focus on the mathematical learnin
g process and gain more experience during mathematics activity. Thirdly\,
we prompted a series of research to apply mathematics PBL textbook at the
experiment schools. And we concluded that the PBL textbook was a very good
fit for middle school students’ cognitive style and could meet their le
arning requirements. Moreover\, it had significant positive impact not on
ly on the development of students' mathematical abilities in problem solvi
ng\, exploring and innovation\, but also on some non-intellectual perspect
ives\, such as their learning attitudes and interests in mathematics.\n\nA
s a result\, we propose the following suggestions for the functions and im
plementation of PBL textbook in mathematics: \nOn one hand\, PBL textbook
could be used as an auxiliary form of learning material. It could be used
as a mean to intervene mathematical learning process of gifted students or
low learners.\nOn the other hand\, in PBL textbook development\, the rela
tionship between knowledge learning and project activities\, as well as th
e contextualization and mathematicization of learning content should be co
nsidered. Meanwhile\, it is also necessary to deal with the contradiction
between PBL and standardized test\, and the relationship between PBL and t
raditional instruction in mathematics\; moreover\, teacher training such\,
as knowledge accumulation\, belief\, and etc. should be strengthen.\n\nht

SUMMARY:PreTeXt Authoring Workshop

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Rob Beezer (University of Puget sound)\nPreTeXt [1]
is an authoring and publishing system\, used primarily (but not exclusivel
y) to create and distribute undergraduate mathematics textbooks. There ar
e presently about fifty textbooks authored with PreTeXt\, mostly published
with open licenses. A key part of the design is that authors create sour
ce material in a very structured form. This allows us to replicate that s
tructure within the electronic versions produced--in ways invisible to the
reader\, but such that it is possible to very accurately observe how a re
ader interacts with their book. See [2] for more details.\n\nThis will be
a very hands-on workshop. Participants will need to bring their Internet
-connected laptop equipped with a recent Chrome or Firefox web browser. Th
en\, each participant will author a small textbook\, and by the end of the
workshop simultaneously produce an online version and a print version of
their book.\n\nEven if you do not have plans to write a textbook\, or do n
ot even know anybody else who does\, this workshop will give you a concret
e introduction to the value derived by authoring scholary documents in a s
tructured way\, and the implications for collecting data about textbook us
