The mathematics education faculty and graduate students at Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and Purdue University, and sponsors HAMTE and Qualitative Studies in Education, will be hosting the tenth Indiana Mathematics Education Research Symposium on Friday, March 6, 2020. The symposium will be held in the School of Education on the IUPUI Campus. Here is the program: IMERS 2020 Program.pdf

Presentation Session Structures:

Completed Studies

Presentation sessions for completed studies are scheduled for 45 minutes: 25 minutes will be allotted for presentation and 20 minutes for discussion and feedback.

Work-in-progress Studies

Presentation sessions for work-in-progress studies are scheduled for 40 minutes: 10-minutes will be allotted for each presentation and 20 minutes will be allotted for discussion and feedback. Attendees will watch both presentations and then will split into two groups for the discussion and feedback session, to maximize individualized feedback to each presenter. A facilitator will be assigned for each presenter. 

Work-under-design Studies

Presentation sessions for work-under-design studies are scheduled for 30 minutes: 10 minutes will be allotted for each presentation and 10 minutes will be allotted for discussion and feedback for the presenters. The presentation and discussion will take place in a roundtable format to best facilitate in-depth discussion. A facilitator will be assigned to the session to ensure that the discussion flows smoothly and that the feedback is constructive. Given the format of these discussions, you will not have a projector so be prepared to use your computer if you have a PowerPoint, video clips etc. to show.

Panel Discussion

Panel discussions are 45 minutes in length and are designed to provide insights from different perspectives on a single issue, idea, or activity in mathematics education. For example, a research group exploring children’s conceptions of negative numbers could propose a collection of brief reports that illuminates various dimensions of the project or could describe how different frameworks might be used to explore children’s conceptions.

Guidelines for Presentation Technology

All the rooms will have access to multimedia equipment. Bring your laptop connector/adapter, as well as your presentation on a thumb-drive.
