Mathematical Competence Development with the Use of E learning

Agnieszka Heba


The changing market conditions related to the processes of globalization cause changes in human resource management. An employee wishing toretain their place of work must be flexible and capable of rapid adaptation of new technologies, especially information technology. Standard professional preparation, especially in the areas of advanced technology no longer enough, which forces the use of new techniques and technologies of teaching, especially in the sciences directly related to information technology. The case of learning throughout life has been noticed and appreciated by European institutions. Defined eight key competences that are needed by every man for self-fulfillment and personal development, for active citizenship and full social inclusion and employment. These include, inter alia, mathematical competence. Very accurately described it, Mogens Nisse. The idea of mathematical competence is in Polish and Czech standards, examination requirements. The article presents doctoral thesis research tasks undertaken at the Faculty of Education, University of Ostrava on the development of mathematical competence in students of secondary schools using e-learning. The article presents: the present condition of the problem and the AIMS study.
