We are happy to kick-off our 2015-2016 colloquium series with Dr. Marilyn Strutchens from Auburn University. Here are the details of her colloquium:

Strutchens

Twenty-two Years of Striving for Equitable Practices in Mathematics Education

Thursday, September 17; 2:00-3:00 PM

Aderhold 206

An excellent mathematics program requires that all students have access to a high quality mathematics curriculum, effective teaching and learning, high expectations, and the support and resources needed to maximize their learning potential. (NCTM, 2014, p. 59)

For more than 22 years Dr. Marilyn Strutchens has been actively pursuing ways to make the teaching and learning of mathematics more equitable for all students. In this colloquium she will share her journey, provide insights into some of the projects and publications for which she is associated, and engage participants in activities that will encourage them to enact equitable practices in their work. Works related to the following topics will be discussed: student achievement and engagement, equitable teaching practices, and parental involvement.

Light refreshments will be served.
