A member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Howe has invested time and effort in the study and improvement of K-12 mathematics education, focusing on curriculum, teaching, and teacher preparation over the last 20 years.

This workshop will recognize Dr. Howe’s contributions to mathematics education and bring together mathematicians, mathematics educators, other scholars and practitioners to share and further research and practices in areas that he has had a continuing interest.

The workshop will be structured with the following three themes:

  • The state of the field of mathematical knowledge needed for teaching,
  • The core ideas and practices in the K-12 mathematics curriculum and
  • Support for mathematicians to engage productively in K-12 mathematics education
