Annie & John Selden Prize for Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education

SIGMAA on RUME was formed in 2001 for the purpose of encouraging quality research in undergraduate mathematics education (RUME) and its application in teaching practices. SIGMAA on RUME provides organizational support for researchers conducting RUME and to those interested in using the results of RUME. It also provides organizational support for the dissemination of the results of this research.


SIGMAA on RUME conducts activities such as talks, conferences, publications, and mentoring. In addition, it maintains a listserv of the membership for the purposes of sharing information. It sponsors a reception at the January meeting of the MAA as well as sponsoring contributed paper and poster sessions at those meetings.

SIGMAA on RUME seeks to build relationships with all other organizations concerned with the learning and teaching of mathematics at all levels, from pre-school to graduate school. SIGMAA on RUME conducts its activities within the structure of the MAA.
