The APEC Specialists are working on examples of mathematical tasks that incorporate the idea of emergency preparedness with a focus on tsunami and earthquake. Seven economies presented their examples. The final product is an e-book for teachers to use in class.
At least two criteria that can be used to prepare the e-book is (1) to provide authentic and context-based learning to stimulate interest in mathematics and science learning (2) to provide a technologically dynamic learning environment to prepare students for the technological world. This is based on the idea that mathematical and scientific as well as technological literacies are critical in the learning of students in the APEC economies.
