(Matematičko obrazovanje u Hrvatskoj – stanje i perspektive)

The round table Mathematics education  current state and
perspectives is designed as a followup of the round table The role and
importance of mathematics education held at the Fourth Croatian
Mathematical Congress in Osijek (2008). The proposed round table (Rijeka,
2012) would question the actualities related to important topics of
mathematics education in Croatia. These are:

review of decisions and conclusions of the round table in
Osijek and determination of the degree of their realization, especially in
terms of scientific research in the field of mathematics education and the
status of mathematics education in Croatian scientific space

news in general compulsory, secondary and higher
mathematical education in Croatia, such as:
 adoption of the National
curriculum framework for preschool education and general compulsory and
secondary education,
 introduction of externally
evaluated assessment in primary and secondary education,
 centralized admission to higher
education,
 criteria for admission to higher
education, with emphasis on admission to university studies
Enhancing mathematical education and research on
nonmathematical study programs

na nematematičkim studijima)

The mathematics is the guiding force and strong support to
various technologies, strongly related to natural sciences and economy and
used in organization and optimization of processes in business, finances
and other areas. Mathematicians have a strong influence on these
processes working on current problems as well as educating others in terms
of various courses.
It rises a question of organizing such courses which are
oriented to education of engineers, economists, computer experts and other
highly educated persons.
We will discuss about such courses for nonmathematicians
at our universities as well as comparison to other universities abroad.
Teaching of mathematics in nonmathematical study can be improved by
introducing adequate mathematical topics as well as using new techniques.
Hence, we emphasize the elearning of mathematics in high education.
Recently, the level of elearning in Croatia has significantly increased.
Now, we have to reevaluate obtained results in elearning in mathematics
and determine the direction of the future development.
