Description: Biography, books, projects, papers, and presentations of the Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor of Mathematics at the University of Georgia (UGA). Originally researching arithmetic geometry, Beckmann now considers the mathematical education of teachers and mathematics content for students as her current main interests. She has coauthored the Mathematical Education of Teachers II (MET-II), the IES Practice Guide, and Focus in Grade 2: Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points; served on the mathematics writing team for the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI); written for the Progressions Project; and freely offers slides and other resources from conference presentations, such as "Multiplication to Ratio, Proportion, and Fractions within the Common Core"; "Common Core K-12 Math Standards and Teacher Education"; "Enacting Mathematical Practices in a Community of All Mathematics Teachers"; "The Community of Math Teachers from Elementary School to Graduate School"; "From the Common Core to a Community of all Mathematics Teachers"; and "Could the mathematics teaching community become as successful as the mathematics research community?" Links to Beckmann's articles include "Standard algorithms in the Common Core State Standards" (National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Journal of Mathematics Education Leadership), "Solving Algebra and Other Story Problems with Simple Diagrams: a Method Demonstrated in Grade 4 - 6 Texts Used in Singapore" (The Mathematics Educator), and "What mathematicians should know about teaching math for elementary teachers" (Mathematicians and Education Reform Newsletter).
