How might we engage with one another to improve mathematics teaching and learning?
The Faculty of Education at the University of Calgary and JUMP Math will co-host a one-day conference in Calgary on February 2, 2013 to address this question, focusing in particular on the place of “the new interdisciplinarity” in mathematics education.
New interdisciplinarity is about bringing together experts in varied domains to address a matter of common concern. This conference will gather leaders in neuroscience, psychology, and linguistics – along with innovators in resource development, the learning sciences, and other domains – to connect and collaborate on the improvement of numeracy, spatiality, and other vital mathematics competencies.
This conference will be of particular interest to teachers, pre-service teachers, parents, school administrators, consultants, policy-makers, educators and researchers.
