Realistic Mathematics Education Conference
We cordially invite you to join us September 18 – 20, 2015, for the Fifth International Realistic Mathematics Education Conference (RME5). The program is organized to address the interests and needs of university faculty; district, state or national school administrators; and professional developers and teachers who are engaged in design and research in mathematics education and/or teach pre-service courses. The content addressed in this 3-day conference addresses elementary through university level mathematics.
Understanding the ways in which teachers and students mathematize problem contexts, make connections, and develop mathematical arguments is of critical importance in mathematics education. Student engagement in and understanding of mathematics is essential to informed citizenship, economic opportunity, and solving problems across many disciplines. Presenters at the 2015 RME conference will share their application of fundamental design principles and the various ways in which realistic contexts, emergent models, and representations support mathematical reasoning. Plenary and interactive breakout sessions will explore curriculum and assessment design, teacher learning and practice, and studies of student learning.
This year we are thrilled to offer an enriching program that includes keynote speakers and an expanded program of 90 minute breakout sessions offered by research faculty, educators and curriculum designers, and teachers from the United States, the Cayman Islands, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and South Africa who have engaged in research, design and use of instructional sequences to support students’ and teachers’ understanding of mathematics in primary, secondary and undergraduate level education.
