ab: Summary: The article presents the genesis of the international conference
Geometry and geometrical education in the current secondary and high
school, which took place on November 22‒25, 2012 at Togliatti State
University. This conference was dedicated to the 70th birthday of
professor W. A. Gusiew, professor of mathematics education, author and
co-author of geometry textbooks and methodological guidebooks for
mathematics teachers. In this article, the essential threads of the
plenary lecture of professor W. A. Gusiew and the points of the
scientific program of the Togliatti conference are discussed. The
plenary lecture, as well as papers and groups’ and round table
discussions revealed the results of research on the problems of
geometry, and the state, quality and current problems of geometrical
education of pupils and students. Both Russian and foreign participants
of the conference, while judging and summarizing the results of the
conference, jointly expressed their concerns about the slow pace of
adapting the educational systems to the Bologna process, and about the
current state and quality of mathematics education. The legitimacy of
those concerns is shown by the lower motivation of pupils and students
to study geometry and mathematics, a reduced number of mathematics
lessons in school, confusing standards of mathematics education,
reduced requirements on the mathematics school-leaving examination and
mathematics exams at universities.
