Pehkonen, Erkki, Ed. (1996). Current State of Research on Mathematical Beliefs III. Proceedings of the MAVI-3 Workshop (3rd, Helsinki, Finland, August 23-26, 1996). Research Report 170. This report contains papers given in the third workshop on the Current State of Research on Mathematical Beliefs. No plenary talks were given. The presentations were categorized into the subjects of pupil beliefs and teacher beliefs. The concept of belief in this workshop also refers to conceptions, views, and attitudes. Pupils' beliefs and their connections to mathematics learning were mainly addressed within the framework of comprehensive school where the central theme seemed to be the development of pupils' beliefs in school. The international comparison was also a topic of research. In the case of teachers' beliefs, the central field of interest was the development of student teachers' beliefs. Papers include: (1) "Investigation of Motivation in Hungary" (Andras Ambrus); (2)"Mathematics versus Computer Science: Teachers' Views on Teacher Roles and the Relations of Both Subjects" (Peter Berger); (3) "A Theoretical Framework for Teachers' Conceptions" (Fulvia Furinghetti); (4) "Beliefs of Pupils and First Year Students about Mathematics Education" (Gunter Graumann); (5) "Feminine Structures in Mathematical Beliefs and Performances" (Markku Hannula and Marja-Liisa Malmivuori); (6) "Research Project: Development of Pupils Mathematical Beliefs" (Markku Hannula, Marja-Liisa Malmivuori, and Erkki Pehkonen); (7) "Mathematical Beliefs of Eighth-Graders: What is Mathematics?"

Torney-Purta, Judith; Schwille, John; Amadeo, Jo-Ann (1999). Civic Education across Countries: Twenty-four National Case Studies from the IEA Civic Education Project. This volume reports the results of the first phase of the Civic Education Study conducted by International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). During 1996 and 1997, researchers in 24 countries collected documentary evidence on the circumstances, contents, and processes of civic education in response to a common set of framing questions. They also solicited the views of experts on what 14-year-olds should know about a variety of political and civic issues. Each chapter provides a summary of these national case studies and highlights pressing issues or themes of current importance within civic education. This volume will give educators and policy-makers cross-national information to enhance consideration of the role and status of civic education within their countries, especially in light of growing concerns about youth participation in democratic society.

Taylor, E. H. (1915). Mathematics in the Lower and Middle Commercial and Industrial Schools of Various Countries Represented in the International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics. Bulletin, 1915, No. 35. Whole Number 662, United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior. The object of this report is to give an account, in such a form as to allow comparisons, of the instruction in mathematics in the Lower and Middle Commercial and Industrial Schools in the countries reporting to the International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics. The data of this report have been taken entirely from the reports of the international commission, except in the cases of Great Britain, Germany and the United States. In these cases certain other sources of information, such as official school reports, have been consulted. The countries included in this report are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. The reports of the international commission give a very brief treatment of the commercial and industrial schools in certain countries, and consequently the discussion of the schools of those countries is brief in the present report. The first part of this report consists of an account of the schools considered, arranged according to countries. This account contains, so far as the facts are available, a brief statement of the organization of each type of school, the entrance requirements, length of the course, by whom supported, aim of the school and of the mathematical instruction, courses of study in mathematics, methods of instruction in mathematics, preparation of the teachers, examinations, and present tendencies. The second part gives in tabular form, so far as the facts are available, for each type of school in each country the following facts: The number of years of previous school attendance required for entrance; the approximate age at entrance; the number of years in the course; the number of hours a week spent in the school; the number of hours a week given to the study of mathematics; and the course of study in mathematics. There is given, finally (pp. 94-96), a list of the kinds of schools here considered and the terms used as equivalents in this report. An account of the teaching of mathematics in the commercial and industrial schools of the United States is given in the Reports of Committees I, II, III, IV, and V of the American Subcommission of the International Commission. As these reports are readily available, it has been thought necessary in the present report to give only a brief summary of this work and to refer to the original committee reports for further details. Individual sections contains footnotes. [This bulletin was written with the editorial cooperation of David Eugene Smith, William F. Osgood, and J. W. A. Young.
