Conference on Research and Innovation in
Teaching Mathematics with Technology

September 13–14, 2019

Conference theme: Strategic and Impactful Use of Technology in the
Teaching and Learning of Mathematics

The 2019 Conference on Research and Innovation in Teaching Mathematics with Technology will be held at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Friday, September 13–Saturday, September 14, 2019. We seek a variety of talks focusing on one or more of the following strands:

  • The structure, content, and sequence of courses designed to prepare pre-service teachers to use technology in their mathematics classrooms.
  • Research on the use of technology in mathematics classrooms at any level.
  • Pedagogical innovations in the use of technology within mathematics (or mathematics education) coursework.

Submissions with connection to the conference theme will be given special attention. Abstracts should be no more than 3,000 characters (including references) and can be submitted online.

Available session formats are:

Presentation (30 min)

A research report, demonstration, case study, or informational session about a topic of interest. It is expected that these presentations will be supported by data collected as part of a purposeful investigation of the integration of technology in the teaching or learning of mathematics. These sessions are also a place for presenters to share informal findings about challenges or successes encountered when teaching mathematics with technology. The speaker will be given 20 minutes for the presentation and will then be expected to moderate a 10 minute discussion on the topic.

Interactive Discussion (30 min)

An interactive demonstration or experiential session that is focused on audience participation and active learning. At least half of the time is spent on experiential learning or active audience participation (Note: listening/asking questions are not considered forms of active participation). These sessions can be places to share/model lessons that feature technology integration, engage participants in current research that focuses on mathematics with technology, etc. 

Point-Counterpoint (30 min)

A session where two or more speakers plan and present a coordinated discussion about an issue related to the teaching and learning of mathematics with technology. Sessions should be structured around a central question. For example, how is technology changing the mathematics curriculum? What role should graphing calculators play in the classroom? Relevant research findings related to the central question should be shared and discussed.The intention of these sessions is to foster conversations that highlight varying perspectives on current issues. It is expected that the speakers will actively engage the audience in the session through questions and discussion.

The deadline for submission is July 1, 2019.

Notification of acceptance will be sent out on or before July 12, 2019.

Accepted abstracts will be distributed electronically and included on the conference website.
