Mathematics Education Research, Teacher Preparation, and Outreach

The Mathematics Education group is involved in creative scholarly activities, oversees the Department's teacher preparation course (including an innovative secondary teacher preparation program), and carries out an array of outreach projects for school-age students, teachers, and parents. The Mathematics Education group maintains a strong program of research and scholarly productivity. They have produced innovative, nationally published texts for college students as well as a series of nationally available K-8 mathematics texts. In research, the group focuses on teacher education and on issues of equity and diversity in the teaching and learning of mathematics, primarily within a socio-cultural framework. There is also an increasing interest in research in mathematics education at the undergraduate level. The creation in 1992 of a mathematics education option in the department's Ph.D. program and a teaching option in the MA program complement these research activities. There is currently a Mathematics Education Research colloquium that serves as a forum for discussion for graduate students and faculty working in this area.
