AESA 2017 CRITICS' CHOICE AWARD

Mathematics Education: A Critical Introduction by Mark Wolfmeyer
The Department of Secondary Education is excited to announce that one of our own, Dr. Mark Wolfmeyer, will be honored at the American Educational Studies Association (AESA) conference in Pittsburgh, Pa. in November. Dr. Wolfmeyer's newest book, "Mathematics Education: A Critical Introduction" has been selected for the AESA 2017 Critics' Choice Award. This book offers insight on how race, class, gender, and language have real effects in the mathematics classroom, and prepares current and future mathematics teachers to offer a more critical math education that increases accessibility for all students. We invite faculty and staff to join us in congratulating Dr. Wolfmeyer on this esteemed award.
