Abstract

Nationally, much attention is focused on the need to improve K-12 mathematics teaching and learning and the need for high quality mathematics teachers at every level. Do our universities and colleges place appropriate priority on contributing to the preparation and continuing development of teachers?  Do mathematics departments contribute effectively to the mathematical preparation of teachers, including both those seeking initial certification and current teachers of mathematics? What challenges do universities face as they work to meet the need for well-prepared teachers of mathematics? Three national leaders in mathematics and mathematics education will discuss these issues in an interactive conversation that includes opportunities for questions from workshop participants.
