iNTERNATIONAL GROUP FOR MATHEMATICAL CREATIVITY AND GIFTEDNESS

The International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness (MCG) is a professional society designed to support and promote mathematical creativity and giftedness in students of all ages and of various backgrounds.

Interested individuals worldwide are invited to join us. The Institute for the Development of Gifted Education is excited to support the MCG and its mission.

Mission of MCG

The purpose of MCG 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 various 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
  • mathematics competitions
Goals of MCG:

Encourage research concerning the discovery, nurture and support of mathematical creativity, giftedness, talent and promise for all students.

Support investigation and dissemination of information on the role of teacher knowledge and education, educational systems, and cultural aspects related to the development of mathematical creativity and promise.

Stimulate regional and international activities to promote the aims of the Group.

Cooperate with regional and international associations with similar aims.

Organize international conferences and stimulate discourse among mathematicians, psychologists, educators, researchers, curricular designers and sociologists.

Stimulate and support members of the Group to participate actively in conferences or projects, or other activities that enhance the aims of the Group.

Further scientific publications and encourage the development of websites for effective communications.

Assist educators and inform policymakers.
