Judith Jacobs Lecture (Thursday, February 18)

Marta Civil is a Professor of Mathematics Education and the Roy F. Graesser Chair in the Department of Mathematics at The University of Arizona. Her research looks at cultural, social, and language aspects in the teaching and learning of mathematics; participation in the mathematics classroom; connections between in-school and out-of-school mathematics; and parental engagement in mathematics. She has led multiple funded projects working with children, parents, and teachers, primarily in Mexican American communities. Her research is grounded on the concept of Funds of Knowledge with a focus on developing culturally sustaining learning environments in mathematics education. Her most recent work includes a K-3 parental engagement mathematics project aimed at developing a two-way dialogue between home and school and a new collaboration with two other universities focused on the development of a mathematical partnership that engages teachers, parents, and multilingual children in grades 3-5 in underserved communities. She is also exploring how to apply lessons learned from her work in equity in K-12 settings to undergraduate / entry level mathematics teaching and learning.

With respect to AMTE, she has served as the Associate Vice President for Equity and is currently one of the Associate Co-Vice-Presidents for the STaR Fellows Program. She was one of the co-editors for Cases for Mathematics Teacher Educators: Facilitating Conversations about Inequities in Mathematics Classrooms in the AMTE professional book series.
