FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ETHNOMATHEMATICS

http://icem-4.org/

The fourth annual ICEM comes to its fourth continent this July
25-30 when it arrives near Baltimore, in Towson, Maryland.

Ethnomathematics looks at the mathematics of cultural groups
and the many interactions between mathematics and culture.
Anyone interested in ethnomathematics is invited to
participate--including those who do not consider themselves
mathematicians!

The conference will include scholarly presentations, cultural
features, excursions, lunches, etc. and a day-tour to the
National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.
Inexpensive accommodations will be available in university
residence halls; also there are nearby hotels.

Download and complete this PDF by May 1 for early bird
registration:

Contact Lawrence Shirley at LShirley@towson.edu if you have
questions or further ideas for the conference.

On April 15, Michigan State University's College of Education
released its Teacher Education Study in Mathematics (TEDS-M),
billed as the "first international comparison of teacher
preparation based on a test given to college students in a
significant number of countries."

On the site above, you can find:
- the press release
- the webinar of the April 15 presentation
- initial findings from the report
- answers to frequently asked questions
- a list of research sponsors

AdaptErrEx CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~bmclaren/projects/AdaptErrEx/

AdaptErrEx has developed free online materials to aid in
teaching decimals to middle school students. Laboratory
studies indicate that these materials help students to
learn better and faster.

This project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, now
seeks middle school teachers who want to use these materials in
the classroom, for a study of the materials' effectiveness in
real environments. Participating teachers will receive gifts
after the studies are completed.

To learn more about how you can participate, please go to:

http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~bmclaren/projects/AdaptErrEx/teachers/

Try some of AdaptErrEx's intelligent software for decimal
addition or proportional reasoning here:

For questions, contact Bruce McLaren, the study director, at
bmclaren@cs.cmu.edu.
