MESA would like to invite you to this yearŐs first colloquium featuring Glenda Lappan. Dr. Lappan is a University Distinguished Professor at the Michigan State University and has served on the Board of Directors for the NCTM, co-author of the Connected Mathematics Project, and recipient of the Association for Women in Mathematics' Louise Hay Award where she received the following tribute:
Glenda Lappan's long-standing and varied contributions have touched the individual and collective lives of mathematicians, mathematics teacher educators, undergraduates, graduate students, practicing teachers, and children. She embodies a rare combination of "mathematics educator" and "mathematics education educator" whose professional life is grounded in a deep understanding of and love for mathematics and the teaching and learning process. She is highly respected as a teacher, researcher, consultant, and national leader.
Dr. Lappan will be joining us to talk about her influential work with the curriculum projects. We hope you can join us for this year first colloquium!
