Conference Date and Agenda
The 2017 MI-AMTE Conversations among Colleagues meeting will be held on March 18, 2017.
Attendees may pick up their badge, conference materials, and a light continental breakfast in the Erickson Hall Lobby just off the parking lot starting at 7:30 am. The first session begins at 8:30 am in Room 103 (Kiva) and the conference ends at 4:45 pm.
This year's conference theme is Developing Systems to Face the Challenges of Today and Tomorrow.
Mathematics educators in Michigan are increasingly faced with complex issues related to improving teaching and learning mathematics, including highly public federal and state accountability systems, limited financial resources, enrollment declines, increase demand for STEM workforce, and more. These inequities involve educational systems that have wide audiences including policymakers, practitioners, and parents. The goal of the conference is to bring together mathematics teacher educators, mathematicians, and other educational leaders to better understand, respond to, and advocate for mathematics and mathematics education in Michigan at a systems level.
