Critical Issues in Mathematics Education at MSRI
Next week I’m heading to the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley, CA to participate in the 2019 Critical Issues in Mathematics Education (CIME) conference.
CIME brings together academics, researchers, industry partners, and teachers to discuss important issues in education. The theme of this year’s conference is mathematical modeling in K-16 education. Here’s a summary of the goals from the conference website.
The CIME workshop on MM will bring together mathematicians, teacher educators, K-12 teachers, faculty and people in STEM disciplines. As partners we can address ways to realize mathematical modeling in the K-12 classrooms, teacher preparation, and lower and upper division coursework at universities. The content and pedagogy associated with teaching mathematical modeling needs special attention due to the nature of modeling as a process and as a body of content knowledge.
I’m proud to be representing K-12 teachers as well as Math for America at this year’s CIME, where I will be presenting as part of the conference’s opening panel along with Jo Boaler, Ricardo Cortez, and Maria Hernandez.
A full schedule and list of speakers is available at the CIME conference website.
