Conversations Among Colleagues:
Collaborating to Improve the Mathematical Education of Our Students

was held
Friday, March 24, 2006
at the University of Michigan School of Education in Ann Arbor.

The conference featured a keynote address by Patricio Herbst, University of Michigan, and Daniel Chazan, University of Maryland. Herbst and Chazan collaborate on ThEMat: Thought Experiments in Mathematics Teaching.

The conference was designed to foster communication among the many parties responsible for the mathematics education of teachers in Michigan--college and university mathematicians and mathematics educators, K-12 mathematics supervisors, curriculum directors, and classroom teachers who mentor teacher interns.

The 2006 Conversations Among Colleagues was jointly sponsored by

* Center for Mathematics Education at the University of Michigan-Dearborn,
