Abstract

The theme of this year's conference is "Sin Fronteras: Questioning Borders with(in) Mathematics Education." This theme is intended to encourage research presentations, discussion, and reflection on the variety of borders within mathematics education, as well as those that might be probed, challenged, explained, enhanced and/or potentially transformed by mathematics education. Sessions examine topics such as geographic, political, cultural and language borders with(in) mathematics education, as well as borders between mathematical content areas and grade levels, and how borders can limit access to mathematical content or impact mathematics teaching practices. To catalyze conversations about the conference theme, the organizers of this conference organized three plenary talks that each address different perspectives on borders with(in) mathematics education. The 2016 conference was attended by over 550 researchers, faculty, and graduate students from around the world including the US, Mexico, Canada, Sweden, Australia, Chile, Puerto Rico, Israel, Trinidad and Tobago, and Germany. Submissions received numbered 581. The acceptance rate was 92% for working groups, 48% for research reports, 36% for brief research reports, and 61% for posters. The conference program includes 104 Research Report sessions, 102 Brief Research Report sessions, 222 Posters, and 11 Working Groups. It is the hope of the organizers that this would be a model to follow in future Psychology of Mathematics Education-North American Chapter conferences. Chapters include: (1) Plenary Papers; (2) Curriculum and Related Factors; (3) Early Algebra, Algebra, and Number Concepts;(4) Geometry and Measurement; (5) Inservice Teacher Education/Professional Development; (6) Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching; (7) Mathematical Processes; (8) Preservice Teacher Education; (9) Statistics and Probability; (10) Student Learning and Related Factors; (11) Teaching and Classroom Practice; (12) Technology; (13) Theory and Research Methods; and (14) Working Groups. Individual papers include references. [Individual plenary and research papers are available in ERIC. Some papers are written in both Spanish and English.]
