Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on
in Undergraduate Mathematics Education (SIGMAA on RUME) presents its
Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education.
The SIGMAA on RUME aims to foster a professional atmosphere for quality research in the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics. We solicit proposals for contributed papers presenting results from completed research studies on undergraduate mathematics education that address one or more of the following themes:
o Results of current research
o Contemporary theoretical perspectives and research paradigms
o General issues in the psychology of mathematics education.
The SIGMAA on RUME seeks to support the professional development of new researchers in the field of undergraduate mathematics education. To foster constructive discussions toward this goal, we encourage graduate students, new PhDs, undergraduate mathematics educators, and experienced researchers to present preliminary reports on research projects in early stages of development or execution. Significant discussion time will follow each presentation to allow for feedback and suggestions for future directions for the research.
Proposals must conform to the following
format and be received by
Please keep other questions, queries, and correspondence to the Chair of the Program Committee separate from the e-mail submission of your proposal.
Your proposal should consist of the following five parts:
III. Criteria for review of proposals. Your proposal must address an issue relevant to RUME and be well-written. In reviewing your proposal the committee will consider the following questions when applicable:
Does the proposal
explore a significant issue/question relevant to RUME?
How does it relate to prior research on related topics/issues?
Is the theoretical perspective clearly outlined?
Is there an appropriate choice of research methodology?
Is the analysis supported by data?
Is it clear what the conclusions/main claims are?
Are those supported by data?
Is there potential to extend this research?
Does the research contribute to teaching practice/theory development?
Is there promise of a successful presentation?
IV. Method for review of proposals. Upon receipt of your proposal, the Chair of the Program Committee will blind the submissions by stripping away the Name/E-mail/Affiliation information at the beginning of the e-mail. The proposals will then be sent to the other members of the Program Committee who will independently review all proposals. The Chair of the Program Committee will then sort the proposals according to all these reviews. Finally, the entire Program Committee will create the program of talks. At this last step, complete information will be available to all members of the Program Committee.
The final program stemming from this call for proposals will likely consist of:
