Speaker: Dr. William Bush, Director

The Center for Research in
Mathematics and Science Teacher Development (CRMSTD) was established in 2002 at
the University of Louisville by Dr. William S. Bush to: (1) conduct research on
the development of mathematics and science teachers including their knowledge
of mathematics, science, and pedagogy; (2) build exemplary models of teacher
recruitment, teacher education programs, and professional development
experiences through collaborative efforts among mathematicians, scientists,
mathematics and science educators, and classroom teachers; and (3) revise doctoral
programs within the Department of Teaching and Learning in mathematics and
science education to enhance their national prominence. Since the beginning of
the CRMSTD, faculty have been involved in projects totaling over $16 million in
extramural funding. Significant
past projects include the *Appalachian Collaborative for Learning,
Assessment, and Instruction in Mathematics *(ACCLAIM),
the *Louisville Area Science and Mathematics Alliance for the
Recruitment and Education of Teachers*
(LA-SMARTER), and the *Urban University Partnership for Mathematics in Mathematics and
Science Teaching* (UP^{2}MAST).
Current projects include *Algebra I and Geometry End-of-Course
Assessments*, *Formative
Assessments in Middle Mathematics, *and *Improving Algebra Teaching in KY Gear Up Schools.*
