The UCLA Curtis Center will be hosting their Annual Mathematics and Teaching Virtual Conference on Saturday, March 6, 2021 from 9:00AM-3:00PM. Typically, the conference welcomes over 200 teachers, students, and mathematicians for a day of meaningful discussion about mathematics education as well as some hands-on learning.
This year, there will be two keynote speakers covering the challenges of systemic inequity and COVID-19. Dr. Edray H. Goins, a mathematics professor at Pomona College, will discuss “A Black Man’s Journey from South Central to Studying Dessins d’ Enfants.” Dr. Karen C. Fuson, an emerita professor at Northwestern University, will lead a conversation in “Balanced Learning-Path Teaching in the Classroom and Remotely.” Read more about each speaker in the conference flyer here.
Established in 2007, the Curtis Center for Mathematics and Teaching is named after Philip C. Curtis, Jr., a UCLA Mathematics professor for over 50 years. The Curtis Center is a group of K-12 and university mathematics enthusiasts who work together to improve the quality of K-12 mathematics activity through continuing education programs for K-12 teachers, and mathematics teacher preparation programs for UCLA undergraduates.
