Coming Events


Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008
Noon to 1:30
in the Quadrangle Room of the Texas Union, Suite 3.304

(As usual, lunch will be provided free of charge and you should feel free to arrive late or leave early as necessary.)

Dr. Cathy Seeley, a former president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and a senior fellow at the Dana Center working on state and national policy and improvement efforts in mathematics education, will discuss:

Raising the Bar and Opening the Gate

—What are the real changes happening in K-12 mathematics and science and what are the ripple effects on entering university freshmen? Are students moving toward knowing more, knowing less, or just knowing different things? What effect does the University have on what happens in Texas high schools and vice-versa? What do today’s and tomorrow’s entering freshmen need in terms of their mathematics and science opportunities at the University?

The facilitator and moderator of the discussion will be Dr. Michael Marder.

I hope that you will join us at this session.

Please let me know if you can join us by responding by email to mdaniels at math.utexas.edu.
