Mathematicians in Mathematics Education
April 23–25, 2011
- 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 variety of curricula, and mathematics education research. A particular focus of this year's workshop will be orienting mathematicians to undertake productive work supporting assessment, professional development, and curriculum work around 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 arrangements will be announced here closer to the workshop.
Starts at noon on Saturday, April 23 and ends at noon on Monday, April 25.
