It's All About Learning Math
Fri. 3/5: Dr. Umland has been working to improve student learning and achievement in mathematics in the state of New Mexico.
Our guest will be Dr. Kristin Umland, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics and Statistics UNM.
Dr. Umland has been working with teachers, school administrators, and faculty at Institutions of Higher Education through the support of a Math and Science Partnership grant funded by the New Mexico State Public Education Department. This partnership, called La Meta, is to improve student learning and achievement in mathematics in the state of New Mexico.
The La Meta project has included developing and co-teaching five mathematics courses for in-service middle-grade mathematics teachers and organizing a state-wide workshop for teachers and teacher educators intended to improve teacher education across the state.
