to the website of the Society for Didactics of Mathematics. The GDM is a scientific association with the aim to promote the didactics of mathematics – especially in German-speaking countries – and to cooperate with corresponding institutions in other countries. Mathematics didactics deals with the learning and teaching of mathematics at all ages.

New GDM website as of July 2022

Since the end of June, the GDM homepage finally shines in new splendor.

After intensive work we are happy about the new web presence of GDM. With a modernized design, updated content and many new features, the homepage of the Society for Didactics of Mathematics now also reflects the development of recent years towards an increasingly digitized research and education landscape. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all contributors for their great support. Special thanks go to the Klaus Tschira Foundation, without whose financial support this rapid implementation would not have been possible.

Contributions wanted for ZMFP

The GDM journal ZMFP (www.zmfp.de) continues to seek proposals and ideas for articles that support the journal’s objectives.

Contributions are published that address key issues in mathematics education and do so in a way that is both relevant and beneficial to practice, and with sound background from research.

Examples of topics for contributions are:

– What representations / introductory methods / problems / etc… are used to promote understanding of arithmetic operations / fractions / probabilities / etc…? ?
– What forms of promoting problem solving / proving / modeling in mathematics education are there? Which studies give indications on how to design them?
-How can certain theories / findings from mathematics didactic research (e.g. discovery learning, practicing with digital media, teaching quality, etc.) be interpreted and what consequences follow for practice?

There can be very different contributions to each example, and each contribution can also focus on a very concrete topic and/or some concrete studies.

Contributions to the Zeitschrift für Mathematikdidaktik in Forschung und Praxis are particularly suitable for publishing on issues on which one has already worked but has not yet had the opportunity to prepare certain aspects for practice (e.g., status of research, summary of a number of studies, comparison of certain approaches, etc.).

Interested authors express their interest by sending the following information to the editors: (1) a working title for the manuscript; (2) names, institutional affiliations, and contact information for all authors; and
(3) an abstract/plan of no more than 500 words summarizing the content of the proposed manuscript. However, you are welcome to contact us for advice without obligation.

Hints for the layout of articles and already published (rather extensive) articles can be found on the website. Many other formats are conceivable; we are looking for creative ideas, also for smaller articles or for thematic issues.

Third Announcement of the GDM Annual Conference in Frankfurt

From August 29 to September 02, 2022, the 56th Annual Meeting of the GDM will take place at Goethe University Frankfurt under the motto “Mathematics Didacticians* in Dialogue”.

Now that the submission of contributions in minisymposia has ended, individual and short talks as well as posters and discussion forums can still be submitted. Information on contribution types and submission deadlines can be found and on the homepage https://www.gdm-tagung.de and in the third call for papers: https://www.gdm-tagung.de/sites/default/files/2022-04/GDM2022_Third_Announcement.pdf.

If you have any questions, you can reach the team through the contact page of the website or at gdm2022@uni-frankfurt.de

The local organization team of GDM 2022 is looking forward to welcoming all interested parties in 2022 in Frankfurt, the metropolis on the Main River in Hesse.
