Announcements/Calls for papers

  1. The North American Systematic Functional Linguistics Association (NASFLA) seeks nominations for its Promising Scholar Award. Applications and nominations are due on February 22, 2016. See the flyer for more details.

  2. The School of Education at the University of Delaware, with support from the National Science Foundation, will host a working conference for U.S. faculty on mathematics preparation for K-8 teachers, June 6-8, 2016. The goal of the conference is to provide opportunities for participants to develop an action plan for improving the quality of their mathematics content courses for K-8 pre-service teachers. To read more about the conference and submit an application to attend, please go to
  3. A research study on issues of oppression within mathematics education is being conducted. To learn more about the experiences of marginalized researchers in our field, and to gather data on the anti-oppressive practices and structures that support greater equity,
    survey and interview studies are being conducted. Please share this information with any mathematics education student, instructor, researcher or professional developer who might be interested. The survey can be found at The survey will close on January 28, 2016.

  4. IMAGINARY Conference on Open and Collaborative Communication of Mathematical Research 2016 (IC16) is an interdisciplinary gathering for mathematicians, communicators and interested professionals to discuss and work together on current issues of communication and knowledge transfer in mathematics. It will be held in Berlin (Germany) on July 20-23, 2016, parallel to ECM7 and just before ICME13. For more information, visit or write to
  5. The Organizing Team of the Topic Study Group 33 on Equity (Including Gender) at the next International Congress of Mathematics Education in Germany has issued its first version of a Discussion Paper on the State of Research on Equity in Mathematics Education and Arising Challenges. They conceptualize the paper as a "living document" and seek feedback from the international mathematics education community. Please forward your comments to

  6. ICME13 – Teaching and Learning Geometry at the Secondary Level Study Group has issued a call for posters and papers. 

  7. The IAP series, Research in Mathematics Education, is being revived and will focus on a broad range of issues in mathematics education at all levels. There is currently particular interest in proposals dealing with the following areas:  curriculum, assessment, equity in addressing diverse learners, research on the teaching and learning of particular content strands, and other international issues in mathematics education. See the flyer for more information.

  8. Samuel Otten, who curates the Math Ed Podcast, has shared a link to Jim Hiebert's Distinguish Scholar Award talk at the SIG/RME business meeting at AERA 2015. Thanks for capturing the talk, Sam!
  9. Jinfa Cai has shared the recently released IES & NSF Report on Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development. Thanks, Jinfa!
  10. Travel Grants are available from the Association for Women in Mathematics. Deadlines: Feb 1, May 1, Oct 1, every year.

The purpose of SIG/RME is to promote and to disseminate research, development, and evaluative efforts in mathematics education, and to promote and encourage scholarly and productive exchanges among members of all the constituencies that affect, or are affected by, research on the learning and teaching of mathematics.
