Transcript of The Finnish model for development of math education

The Reform in mathematics and science education

a look from Finland LUMA 1996-2002
Mathematics and Science Development Program The national joint action launched by the Ministry of Education for raising mathematical and scientific knowledge in Finland to the international level.
Implementation of the programme was taking place in 16 networks involving 78 local authorities and within their regions a total of 270 educational institutions.
Students with learning and other difficulties, as well as the most talented students, will be supported so that all students will have equal opportunities to learn mathematics and science.
Feasible models will be developed for increasing girls' and women's interest and attainments in mathematics and science studies.
Learning environments will be developed to encourage all students to observe phenomena, to perform experiments, to apply their knowledge in real life situations in solving problems.

More goals:
Mathematics and science teachers will collaborate on different educational levels so that the curriculum will continue smoothly from preschool onwards.
The integration of the teaching of mathematics and science subjects with one another and with fields of application will improve.
An environmental approach will be carried out in teaching mathematics and science subjects.
The relative weight of mathematics and science in vocational education will increase.
Innovations will disseminate from the network schools to local schools, and gradually throughout the country. Concern? What shall we do? Small unofficial group Working group for proposals Concrete program and project
