What could discrete mathematics teaching at secondary level in Denmark look like?

Speakers: Thomas Britz (University of New South Wales) and Britta Jessen (IND)

Abstract: One of the new topics suggested in the reform of upper secondary mathematics teaching in Denmark is to teach discrete mathematics. This was recently introduced in Australian curriculum. Thomas Britz who is senior lecturer at the University of New South Wales and an expert in combinatorics will give a short presentation of potentials and pitfalls in the Australian introduction of discrete mathematics based on a seminar he has given to Australian high school teachers. After the presentation Britta Eyrich Jessen will initiate a discussion of what could and should be promoted in the Danish context of secondary mathematics education.
