Events Details

The event, themed “Celebrating Mathematics”, is a 2-day symposium, hosted by the Mathematics and Mathematics Education Academic Group (MME) of the National Institute of Education (NIE), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

The LPYS is held in honor of Dr. Lee Peng Yee’s contribution to the mathematics and mathematics education community in Singapore. This year, being his last year in NIE, is of special significance, and we take this symposium as an opportunity to show our appreciation for his enormous contribution and bid him farewell. The commitment to nurture and propagate research activities in both mathematics and mathematics education is Dr. Lee’s life mission. Aligned with this mission, the 3rd LPYS is thus organized over two days for students, teachers and researchers to showcase their works in either mathematics or mathematics education. It is also a great opportunity for sharing of salient experiences in the teaching and learning of mathematics.

The theme “Celebrating Mathematics” is a call for vibrancy, innovation and jubilance in mathematics-related activities. For those who know Dr. Lee, this theme is totally befitting of his jovial character and positive outlook in life. It is Dr. Lee’s wish to see everyone “doing, enjoying, succeeding and celebrating” mathematics.
