MSU Math Ed at 2018 AERA Conference

  • Apr 6, 2018

Members of the MSU Mathematics Education community will be attending the American Educational Research Association annual meeting to discuss their ongoing research efforts. This year’s AERA conference will be held April 13th – April 17th in New York City.

The AERA conference is “the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research”. The 2018 Annual Meeting is expecting more than 17,000 in attendance and will feature over 2,800 sessions.

This year’s theme is “The Dreams, Possibilities, and Necessity of Public Education” which will confront the struggles for public education. At the 2018 Annual Meeting, members will come together to share insights and analyses of efforts past and present, which make the impossibility of public education possible.

Molade Osibodu will be one of the PRIME graduate students presenting at the AERA conference. This will be Molade’s first time attending the conference and she says, “I am very excited because I have found that I really enjoy learning from the broader education community and not just math education.” Molade, along with graduate students Chris Dubbs and Luke Tunstall, will be discussing their paper Possibilities for Symbolic Power in Mathematics: Necessitating a Critical Awareness of Dehumanizing Quantification.

See the schedule below for the mathematics education presentations at AERA 2018.
