Database Project Researcher
This is an opportunity for one or more researchers to continue the ICMI Database project.
The aim is to build and update a database of the mathematics curricula all over the world.
For the first phase of this project we asked all ICMI representatives to send us a link to the webpage(s) of their country where anybody can find the official mathematics curricula at all levels of instruction (pre-primary, primary, elementary, middle, secondary, vocational, etc.).
We have for the moment received information on the following countries:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- The Netherlands
- United States of America
- United Kingdom
Information about the project and data: http://www1.mathunion.org/index.php?id=918
This voluntary position would suit someone with an interest in mathematics education. The research would include collecting further data from new countries and update the existing links (if necessary). The researcher is invited to use this data to publish reports under his/her name, organise small seminars or, in the case of multiple researchers, form a research group or panel.
Enquiries should be directed to
