Mathematics schooling is without doubt one of the most crucial yet least understood topics of our age. As technology and know-how stream the realm from the age of machines to the age of pcs, uncomplicated schooling within the language of technology, expertise and pcs takes on elevated value. In either built and constructing countries, extra humans than ever prior to are seeking for edu­ cation in arithmetic. but there are lots of indicators that world-wide arithmetic schooling is of very asymmetric caliber, no longer attuned to the desires of latest society: declining ratings on standardized examS7 diminishing variety of qualified arithmetic educate­ erS7 public outcry at disasters of the "new math"7 specialist predicament with challenge fixing and purposes of mathematics7 uncertainty in regards to the relation of pcs and calculators to arithmetic guideline. It used to be during this context of emerging expectancies and mounting difficulties that over 2000 mathematicians and arithmetic lecturers from ar. ound the area accumulated in August, 1980, on the college of California in Berke­ ley, California, for the Fourth foreign Congress of Mathematical schooling CIeME IV).

Major Trends from ICME IV: A Southeast Asian Perspective Bienvenedo Nebres Ateneo de Manila University In our work in mathematics education in Southeast Asia, we have become aware that there is a dual aspect to our relationship with developments in mathematical education in the advanced countries. On the one hand, we are aware of the great differences in our situation (thus there is need of great care in adapting to new trends); on the other hand, we cannot help but be affected by new developments in the West (because our textbooks are adapted from the West, and our young mathematicians are trained there).

Ignorance is surely not the only reason for this opposition.
