The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics participated in the international TEMPUS project, together with several other national and foreign institutes (University of Debrecen, Esterházy Károly Teachers' Training College (Eger), Karl Franz University of Graz, University of Ghent, University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse), aiming the application of computers in teaching mathematics.
The research team of dyadic harmonic analysis at the Mathematical Science and Didactics Group is in close contact with the research group members of the Tbilisi State University (Georgia), and they have published several research articles about the results of their research. In fact several visits took place in the past two years between the mathematicians of the two institutes which increased the intensity of the research and strengthened the professional relationships.
IPMA, International Project in Mathematics Attainment International research in learning mathematics in school. These comparative longitudinal projects examine the curricula in mathematics, syllabi, teaching-learning approach and the performance of the 5-11 year old students in 17 countries from 1998.
While, according to all national and international measurement of the 13-18 year-old Hungarian students' performance of mathematics have weakened during decades until 2000, the 6-11 year-olds still belong to the forefront at the IPMA. National coordinator: dr. Szalontai Tibor
MEP, Mathematics Enhancement Programme The mathematics teaching program of the Centre for Innovation (CIMT, Plymouth University) for 4-19 year-olds began in 1997. Along with the UK, the USA, Australia and New Zealand there are new inquiries which can be investigated in Chile and Jamaica.
