As part of its on-going activities to foster research in undergraduate mathematics education and the dissemination of such research, the Special Interest Group of the Mathematical Association of America on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education (SIGMAA on RUME) presents its twelfth Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education.
The conference is a forum for researchers in collegiate mathematics education to share results of research addressing issues pertinent to the learning and teaching of undergraduate mathematics. The conference is organized around the following themes: results of current research, contemporary theoretical perspectives and research paradigms, and innovative methodologies and analytic approaches as they pertain to the study of undergraduate mathematics education. The program will include plenary addresses, contributed paper sessions, and preliminary paper sessions.
Sessions will begin at 7:00 pm, February 26, 2009, and continue through to noon on Sunday, March 1, 2009. The opening plenary will take place on Thursday evening followed by a reception. Conference registration includes all meals except dinner on Saturday.
