Workshop description

The demand is increasing for mathematicians who can constructively contribute to work in mathematics education, such as standards development, validation of tests, curriculum design, textbook review, and the preparation and professional development of teachers.

This workshop will orient mathematicians on key issues: the core mathematics of K–12, the mathematical knowledge of teachers, the nature of the educational system, the profusion of standards documents, the variety of curricula, and mathematics education research.

It is aimed the general audience of university mathematicians who wish to become involved in helping solve the problems in mathematics education.
