     View Summary

    When we are constructing how to understand mathematics lesson, it is important to clarify the following : objects that we want the students to understand ; devices to make them understand ; and confirm whether student understood them.Confirmation of understanding is especially important. Moreover, it is necessary to teach carefully the meaning of variables and the value of proofs from the viewpoint of connecting elementary schools, junior high school and high schools. Finally, if we would like to pay more attention between performance and understanding, it is very important for teachers to take time to let students reflect their meta-cognitive processes through journal writing. Simultaneously this process will foster student's understanding

    OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY ARE CLARIFYING THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIS OF SCHOOL MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM CORED WITH MATHEMATICAL ACTIVITIES. AT FIRST, WE SET TOW ACTIVITIES AS THE CORE ACTIVITIES OF DOING MATHEMATICS. ONE IS CREATING/MAKING MATHEMATICS. THE OTHER IS USING/APPLYING MATHEMATICS. THESE ACTIVATES MUST BE SUPPORTED SUITABLE PROCESS SKILLS. SO, WE DISCUSS HOW TO CONSTRUCT THEM ACCORDING TO MATHEMATICAL CONTENTS. FOR EXAMPLE, HOW TO MAKE ALGORITHM, TO USE EQUATIONS, TO CONSTRUCT PROOF/EXPLANATION, ETC.WE TRIED SEVERAL PRACTICES AT ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS ACCORDING TO THE RESEARCH FRAMEWORK. WE GOT SOME EVIDENCE TO IMPROVE CLASSROOM LESSON BY INTRODUCING MATHEMATICAL ACTIVITIES. IT IS NEEDED THAT TEACHERS STRUCTURALIZE THE CLASSROOM LESSON. WE TRIED TO INTRODUCED FOUR STAGES. FIRST STAGE IS GRASPING THE CRITICAL POINTS OF THE PROBLEM AND DEVELOPING THE PLAN TO SOLVE IT. SECOND STAGE IS SOLVING PROBLEMS BY ONESELF AND SUMMING UP THE RESULTS FOR SHARING THE IDEAS IN CLASSROOM. THIRD IS DISCUSSING THE ANSWERS, METHODS, IDEAS, ETC. WITH COLLEAGUES AND TEACHER. FINALLY, THE OUTCOME OF LESSON IS CLARIFIED. AND REFLECT THE PROCESSES OF PROBLEM SOLVING PROCESS FOR FINDING TH

     View Summary

    According to the original plan in three years for awaken of the cultural perspectives in mathematics, 40 examples for subjects matter to teach mathematic as a part of human cultural work have been developed. 30 articles have been reported at the annual academic meeting and researchers have been invited as plenary speakers or keynote speakers at several international conferences. All of results can be seen on the web site.Students tried to understand the mathematics in original (an English translation or Japanese translation) text. When students are trying to understand it, the position of the writer (partner or speaker) and the reason why he/she descried were presumed. Students had compared historical mathematics with their leaned mathematics. They tried to confirm their presumed understanding is reasonable or not. These activities are known and called as the hermeneutic activity. This activity brings students cultural perspectives of mathematics.Each example has been demonstrated in classrooms for awakening cultural perspective in mathematics and illustrated how students recognized mathematics as a part of culture that had developed through human activity.Examples in last two year

    This study analyzed the depths of a needs tendency of children for learning of arithmetic / mathematics. I grasped the tendency, and it was carried out for the purpose of contributing to improvement of future arithmetic / mathematics educationAt first I analyzed an internal and external precedent study and constituted a question paper item in an enthusiast /phobia and the reason, study of arithmetic / mathematics, reasons to learn arithmetic / mathematics and viewpoints of problem solving of arithmetic 1 mathematics. Subsequently I carried out question paper investigation for two grades of the sixth Bade elementary school and the third grade junior high school in Japan, China and Korea and gathered up the resultThe thing that became clear is as follows. A reason which children pick up for is good, and a factor of phobia is "interest of arithmetic / mathematics". The reason which a child put up as the reason that arithmetic / mathematics likes is "interest of arithmetic / mathematics". Subsequently, about study of arithmetic / mathematics, there are more a large chop and child doing it than a child assuming that I like it. Affirmative reaction compares it with Japan and Korea and, a

    Let (X, x) be a purely elliptic singularity, I.e., the plurigenera δ_m(X, x) of the singularity (X, x) is equalto 1 for every m [0x81b8(Shift-JIS)] N. In the two dimensional case, simple elliptic singularities and cusp singularities are purely elliptic singularities.On the other hand, Knoller defined other plurigenera {γ_m(X, x)}_<mN> for a normal isolated singularity (X,x), Between δ_m(X,x) and γ_m(X,x) there is an inequality 0 【less than or equal】 δ_m(X,x) 【less than or equal】 γ_m(X,x).Then the plurigenera γ_m(X, x) make it possible for us to classify purely elliptic singularities.We describe some properties of Knoller's plurigenera defined for normal isolated singularities, especially in case singularities are so-called hypersurfce purely elliptic singularities.Consequently we have made examples of families for hypersurfce purely elliptic sungularities with constant γ_m

    Recently increasing use of some computers and internets in Japan, many schools has been also influenced in the information society. We need to think creatively in the information society with multimedia. We should change some traditional forms that forty students passively study in the classroom all day.In particular, some members in the commission of curriculum assert that teaching hours and contents in mathematics and arithmetic should be decreased. Because many students don't understand many contents in mathematics and arithmetic well. Because of these contents are constructed based on the culture and history in our country, we have to teach to these contents in school.Many students need to do the following ways of living with humanity ; they are moved their heart for seeing to beautiful subjects, they corroborate others with harmony and cooperation. These mind is called "ability for living". We would like to develop these abilities in the classroom of mathematics and arithmetic. We can't teach "ability for living" only through paper pencil approach. We must use the computer for engaging the mathematics teaching to be more effective, and make to environments where involved moder

    The educational eviropment of today around the hgigh technological society has changed. For instance, many knowledgeable people point out that students'saidestepping mathematics and science may risk our fortune on the fundation of Japan as a sientific nation. For these tasks, Japan Society of Mathematical Education, Japan Society for Science Education, and Japan Society of Educational Technology and so on, we have held some symposiums and seminars, and appealed to many researchers, teachers and parents in collaboration with knowledgeable people.On the other hand, the scholastic ability admitted in the current school is out of date and emphasized to master higher tactics and precised skills based on the systematics structure of completed mathematics, unfortunately. People have maintained it and the method for assessing it. As a results, the ability taught in school mathematics has been separating from the mathematical ability necessary for our society. In the recent mathematics education reforms of the foreign countries, it is emphasizied mathematical abilities which correspond to the social needs for rebuilding economics and culture, for example : "Mathematical Proficiency", and na

     View Summary

    Through collaborative research the results of "how to use software in school geometry in both countries? and what kinds of effects are found in using software?" were reported at the International conference of Mathematics, Education held in Spain and Psychology of Mathematics Education held in Finland. Then the difference between France and Japan on the cognitive aspects when students solved the proof problems was found. The following results of research was found in Japan. On the process of problem solving in geometry, students find the characteristics of figures and theory of geometry by themselves after exploring activities with computer software "Cabri-Geometry". And then they tried to find the reason why these characteristics and theorems come from. This approach for proof is very interested by students.As the results of these research a Japanese text book for using Cabri-Geometry in Junior high school edited by Professor Nohda and Nakayama was published in 1996. And samples of materials of geometry course to use this software in class were produced in floppy disk by Shimizu and Kakihara and distributed to school teachers. This book and these materials are very helpful for sch

  • 純楕円型特異点の複素解析的構造

     View Summary

    変形という観点で特異点を捉えると最も基本的であるといわれる有理二重点の境界に位置する特異点として単純楕円型特異点とカスプ特異点がある。これらの特異点は渡邊の多重種数により純楕円型特異点として捉え直すことができた。純楕円型特異点にquasi-Gorensteinという条件を課し、まず病的な純楕円型特異点を排除し、次にCohen-Macaulayか否かで2つのタイプに分け、さらに真性例外集合のMixed Hodge構造により、次元個のタイプにわけることが可能となった。おかげで、2n個のタイプに応じた研究が可能となり、具体的に定義式を計算することが容易になった。このようにして、単純楕円型特異点とカスプ特異点の概念は高次元へと拡張され、(0,i)-type純楕円型特異点として生まれ変わった。特に3次元においてはQ-factorial terminal modificationにおけるterminal singularityの分布を超曲面のときに記述することができたので、ある意味において特異点が超曲面であるための必要条件を得ることができた。

    In order to clarify the conformity degree of education target, education policy, and admission policy in each university to the variety of secondary education, we, in this research, conducted the investigation about admission policy and the questionnaire about the enforcement situation of Admissions office examination, the present conditions and problems of the information for a high school student in an open campus, the present conditions of admission of the students from a specialty senior high school and a comprehensive high school, and the motivation of a new student. We held several meetings far the study and talked with the articulation of high school and university concerning with the topics of specialty senior high schools, comprehensive high schools, super science high schools, and diversification of learning in senior high schools. From the rapid increase of admissions office examination and diversification of admission policy, we thought that a static model with fuzziness is not effective, and we analyzed the present conditions. It is necessary to think about the dynamic model that can express environment adaptation ability to treat the newly started admission system tha
