The Institute for the Development of Gifted Education is excited to be hosting the 2014 International Group for Mathematical Creativity and Giftedness (MCG) Conference on the University of Denver's campus, July 28-30, 2014.
This conference is aimed at promoting mathematical creativity and giftedness in students of all ages and backgrounds, and in supporting interested mathematics educators, mathematicians, researchers and other individuals.
Panel Discussions: The panel might include discussion of global perspectives on policy, teacher preparation, acceleration, and programs. (5 page paper)
Presentations: Presentations might include descriptions of the teaching practices, curricula, projects, and programs aimed at the development of students' mathematical creativity and giftedness. (5 page paper)
Research Reports: Presentation on authentic research in the field of mathematical creativity and the education of gifted students. (5 page paper)
Workshops: This type of presentation will require the active involvement of participants and will emphasize hands-on activities. (2 page paper)
Poster Presentations: These presentations are available for those whose work is more suitably communicated in pictorial or graphic form, or as a demonstration as opposed to an oral presentation. (2 page paper)
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.
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.
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.
