Are you a faculty member or graduate student who teaches, or is interested in teaching, mathematics methods courses for preservice K-12 teachers? We are excited to announce a NSF-funded conference just for you!
The Scholarly Inquiry and Practices (SIP) Conference for Mathematics Education Methods will be held September 30-October 2 at Embassy Suites at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Funding for travel, meals, and lodging for 40 participants will be provided. Selection for participation and funding will be based on a review of applications.
Discussions of mathematics education methods will be informed by three different theoretical perspectives: Socio-political, Cognitive, and Situated. Keynote speakers are Rochelle Gutiérrez (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Marty Simon (New York University—Steinhardt), and Elham Kazemi (University of Washington), respectively.
Information about the conference and how to apply is available at our website: www.mathmethods.org .
Prior to submitting an application, please read the “Preparing to Apply” (http://mathmethods.org/preparing-to-apply/ ) section of the website. You will be asked to write a structured abstract about an activity you would use in a mathematics methods course and supply information about your research activities and interests.
The due date for applications is August 21, 2015. You will be notified no later than September 2, 2015 regarding your selection status and travel funding.
