Title: AIMS: Access, Agency, and Allies in Mathematical Systems

Date: 02/27/2017

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Place: 133G Erickson Hall

Speaker: Bartell and Herbel-Eisenmann, MSU

In this presentation, we will share information about the AIMS project, on which faculty and doctoral students from eight universities are studying how mathematics teacher educators, mathematics teachers, and students work together to support the fair distribution of opportunities to learn. We will highlight our theoretical focus on access, agency, and allies and the ways in which this has translated into professional development design and will share the story of how two teachers’ adaptations of a PD task supported them in connecting to authentic student experiences and supporting students’ opportunities to learn rigorous mathematics.
