The increased importance of statistics in today's data-driven world is reflected in the increased level of statistics understanding expected of K-12 students according to the CCSS-M and state-level standards. Join us to learn about two projects focused on developing middle and secondary teachers' statistical knowledge for teaching, including free, research-based curriculum materials for use with preservice teachers.
As a benefit to members, AMTE sponsors professional webinars for mathematics teacher educators. The program features interactive presentations chosen by the AMTE Professional Development Committee.

J. Michael Shaughnessy and Edward A. Silver address the updated draft of the NAEP Mathematics Assessment Framework is available for public feedback for further improvement. As experts in math education, members of AMTE are invited to provide feedback on the draft, and comments are accepted through June 7, 2019. This webinar, co-sponsored by AMTE and WestEd, offers AMTE members to learn more about the framework and establish context for feedback.
Courtesy of affiliate AMMTE, this webinar features Amanda Jansen of University of Deleware, reflecting on hw "rough draft thinking can shift the classroom culture from a focus on performing correctness to a focus on learning mathematics through communicating."
Barbara Swartz, Melinda Knapp and Sararose Lynch address the need to transform field-related content and methods courses into practice-based opportunities grounded in AMTE’s Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (SPTM) by sharing models-in-progress of mediated field experiences (MFEs) and guidance for others who are interested in developing MFEs in their respective programs.
