presents its Tenth
Conference on Research
DoubleTree Hotel, San
Diego - Mission Valley, California
February 22 – February
As part of its on-going activities to foster research in
mathematics education and the dissemination of such research, the
Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on Research
Undergraduate Mathematics Education (SIGMAA on RUME)
its tenth Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics
This conference is a forum for researchers in collegiate mathematics
and includes the following themes: results of current research,
theoretical perspectives and research paradigms, and innovative
methodologies and analytical approaches as they pertain to the study of
undergraduate mathematics. The program will include plenary addresses,
contributed paper sessions, and preliminary paper sessions.
Sessions will begin at 7:00
February 22, 2007,
and continue through to noon
on Sunday, February
The opening plenary will take place on Thursday evening followed by a

NEW Conference Proceedings
and Award for Best Paper
(See the submission
In order to encourage
conference participants to prepare their work for publication, authors
of all accepted proposals are encouraged (but not required) to submit a
previously unpublished paper for an electronic proceedings. Papers are
due shortly after the conference to give authors a chance to
comments and suggestions from their presentation. One paper will be
selected as the Winner of the Best Paper Award for the 2007
Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education
award carries with it a prize of $200. One additional paper will be
awarded Honorable Mention Best Paper Award for the 2007 Conference
on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education
Accepted papers will be available on the SIGMAA on RUME website.
In addition, newer researchers can also opt to have their paper be
considered for selection of pre-journal submission review by more
experienced researchers. Up to four promising papers of newer
researchers will be assigned reviewers to help authors get their paper
ready for submission to a journal. This is a great opportunity for
newer researchers to increase the likelihood of publication in a top
