. Teaching and education were central aspects of Gnedenko's life and work, reflected in his lectures, his textbooks and other educational writings, and his constant concern for the personal and mathematical development of his students. Reflecting this interest, one session of the Conference will be devoted to education and history issues. Contributions with an educational theme, whether at school or tertiary level, would be welcome, the more so if they can reflect some facet of Gnedenko's interests. At the same time, I hope that the Meeting may provide an opportunity to stimulate interest in IASE activities among teachers and academic staff in countries of Eastern Europe, where Gnedenko did much to help restore programmes in probability amid statistics in the period following the second World War.

It will provide a unique forum bringing together faculty from countries with varied educational systems who are committed to introducing innovative teaching methods and new pedagogies. The conference will be of great interest to mathematics faculty as well as anyone involved with the teaching and learning of mathematics.

International Symposium on Integrating Technology into Mathematics Education, Vienna, Austria, 10-13 July 2002. In 1992 ACDCA (the Austrian Center for Didactics of Computer Algebra) started a conference series which has become a driving force in bringing technology, in particular computer algebra systems (CAS), into the classroom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
