**Programs and Projects in
Education in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia**

Members
of the Department of Mathematics are engaged in a variety of unique and
exciting programs and projects in mathematics education. Interested graduate students,
postdocs, and faculty have a number of opportunities for creative involvement
in education here.

Our
programs and projects include:

á
The
*Math Curriculum Team* is a STEM
Learning Community at UGA. Team members are local high school math teachers,
faculty members of the Department of Mathematics, the Department of Statistics,
and the Department of Mathematics and Science Education, as well as a faculty
member and graduate student in Educational Research who specialize in
educational measurement. The team meets monthly to discuss issues of the
mathematics curriculum in high school and the UGA courses that prepare
teachers.

á
*Mathematicians
Educating Future Teachers*
(MEFT) is a two-semester program to train graduate students and postdocs to
teach courses for prospective elementary and middle grades teachers.

á
The
*Mathematics Teaching
Community* is an online community for those of us who
want mathematics teaching to be a vigorous, vibrant profession. It's a place
where we can learn with and from each other and build a repository of knowledge
about mathematics teaching. Everyone who teaches (or taught) mathematics at any
level from PreK through college is invited. Use the
tags to search for topics of interest. Post submissions, which can be anything
for or about mathematics teaching, such as activities, questions, or links to
useful resources. Vote for postings that you find helpful or interesting.
Further information about the site can be found in the FAQ and in postings with
the ÒmetaÓ tag.
