Aaron Douglas Professor of Mathematics
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Mathematics and education faculty are increasingly urged to work together to contribute to the improvement of K-12 mathematics teaching and learning in their local schools. In this talk, we report on NebraskaMATH, a Math Science Partnership funded by the National Science Foundation. The partnership involves three colleges and five departments at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and over 100 local school districts. The discussion will include a description of two professional development programs for teachers, Primarily Math (for K-3 teachers), and Nebraska Algebra (for Algebra 1 teachers).
The State of Mathematics Education in the State
Catherine A. Brown
Professor of Mathematics Education
Indiana University Bloomington
There are a number of national and state activities currently impacting mathematics education from pre-school to graduate school and beyond. The development of Common Core State Standards, changing teacher licensing procedures, changing high school graduation and college entrance requirements, increasingly available electronic instructional materials, new assessments and a weak economy are just a few of the issues that are worthy of examination, discussion and action. This session will provide an overview of the current state of mathematics education in Indiana and provide an opportunity to ask questions and offer suggestions for action.
Indiana Project NExT Panel Discussion
Transitioning students from high school to college mathematics
Panelists Gayla Domke (Purdue North Central), Janet Teeguarden (Ivy Tech ‑‑ Indianapolis) and Bill Stockdale (Ivy Tech ‑‑ Valparaiso) will discuss their experiences and perspectives regarding the transition from high school mathematics to college‑level mathematics. The panelists will each speak, followed by a healthy session of question‑and‑answer. All topics concerning the transition from high school mathematics to college‑level mathematics are fair game, including best practices, curricular concerns, issues with assessment, and preparedness issues.
