Mathematicians in Mathematics Education

April 15–17, 2012

Organizing committee

About this workshop

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 K12, 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.

We have a block of rooms set aside at the DoubleTree Hilton, located 445 S. Alvernon Way, Tucson. Please mention the MIME workshop when making your reservation in order to receive the workshop rate of $99 per night.


Starts at noon on Sunday, April 15 and ends at noon on Tuesday, April 17.
