Cheers to the years!!! The Mathematics Trainers' Guild (MTG), Philippines will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary in October. In its commitment to promote and uplift mathematics education in the country, MTG in coordination with the Department of Education will conduct the 2010 International Mathematics Educators Convention with the theme, “Making Sense: Teaching and Learning Math by Understanding” on October 21 to 24, 2010 at the Royale Tagaytay Club, E.

  2. enrich teachers with innovative strategies for meaningful and fun-filled math class;
  3. provide an opportunity to math teachers to exchange ideas with their colleagues in the national and international level; and
  4. exchange experiences, discuss issues arising from international mathematics education and discuss new models of mathematics education in the 21st century.

As the title of the convention suggests, several math teachers and educators from China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore have pledged to attend it knowing that internationally renowned mathematicians will have sessions and lectures with the participants.
