International Seminar in Mathematics Education 2014

Bridging Policy & Practice

Due to its limited size and highly structured agenda, participation in the International Seminar is by invitation.

Organizers: Johnny Lott, Professor Emeritus, University of Montana, and Gail Burrill, Michigan State University

The International Seminar on Mathematics Education at PCMI began in 2001. The intent of the seminar is to foster conversation among six to eight nations from around the world about the teaching of mathematics. Participation of a mathematics educator and a high school teacher by each country is by invitation only.

This seminar serves as a resource for PCMI Summer Session participants to interact with outstanding professionals from around the world who study the teaching and learning of mathematics.

A major goal of the seminar (held in all summers that the International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) is not conducted) is to produce policy briefs that are available to the international mathematics education community.  The briefs are available at
