Kaye Staceya€š Helen Chicka€š and Margaret Kendal The University of Melbournea€š Australia Abstract: This section reports on the organisationa€š proceduresa€š and publications of the ICMI Studya€š The Future of the Teaching and Learning of Algebra. Key words: Study Conferencea€š organisationa€š proceduresa€š publications The International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) hasa€š since the 1980sa€š conducted a series of studies into topics of particular significance to the theory and practice of contemporary mathematics education. Each ICMI Study involves an international seminara€š the a€œStudy Conferencea€a€š and culminates in a published volume intended to promote and assist discussion and action at the internationala€š nationala€š regionala€š and institutional levels. The ICMI Study running from 2000 to 2004 was on The Future of the Teaching and Learning of Algebraa€š and its Study Conference was held at The University of Melbournea€š Australia fromDecember to 2001. It was the first study held in the Southern Hemisphere. There are several reasons why the future of the teaching and learning of algebra was a timely focus at the beginning of the twenty first century. The strong research base developed over recent decades enabled us to take stock of what has been achieved and also to look forward to what should be done and what might be achieved in the future. In additiona€š trends evident over recent years have intensified. Those particularly affecting school mathematics are the a€œmassificationa€ of educationa€”continuing in some countries whilst beginning in othersa€”and the advance of technology.Heid, M.
