Mathematicians in Mathematics Education
2010 workshop – April 25–27, 2010
- Hyman Bass, University of Michigan
- Roger Howe, Yale University
- Deborah Loewenberg Ball, University of Michigan
- William McCallum (chair), University of Arizona
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. A particular focus of this year's workshop will be the Common Core Math Standards.
The workshop is aimed at the general audience of university mathematicians who wish to become involved in helping solve the problems in mathematics education.
The workshop will be held at the Institute for Mathematics and Education, Gould-Simpson building, Room 837. Breakfast and/or lunch will be catered at the beginning of each half-day session.
Lodging will be provided at the Doubletree Hotel Tucson at Reid Park, located 445 S. Alvernon Way, Tucson. Hotel shuttles will transport participants to and from the Institute for Mathematics and Education.
Starts at noon on Sunday, April 25 and ends at noon on Tuesday, April 27.
