Everybody seems to agree that the United States needs to improve the quality of its math education. There’s less consensus, however, on how to get there.
A conference scheduled for next month in Washington will focus on that topic, specifically on the math taught in high schools. Hosted by the University of Maryland’s Center for Math Education, the two-and-a-half day event will highlight such topics as improving the math curriculum, professional development in high schools, and the essential math skill needed to succeed in college.
The conference will be held Sept. 25-27 at the Renaissance M Street Hotel in D.C. A link to the event can be found here. So mark your calendars.
