The individuals or groups are selected for this special award in Mathematics Education Service and Achievement.

Nominations for this award are made by KCTM members. A committee screens the nominations, makes final selections, and then notifies recipients of the award.

The 2007 James "Duke" Sehnert Memorial Lecture
Making Essential Ideas a Focal Point of Our Mathematics

A number of professional organizations and respected individuals have made recommendations about what should happen in school mathematics.  Moving beyond those recommendations and their classroom implications, this talk uses broadly accessible and engaging mathematical problems to underscore how students and others can think about mathematics in powerful ways.  NKU will host a talk given by Rose Mary Zbiek, Associate Professor in Mathematics Education at Pennsylvania State University.  Rose Mary was a member of the writing team for the Curriculum Focal Points for grades K – 8, and she is series editor of NCTM’s Essential Understandings, a soon-to-be available set of books on math content for educators spanning grades PreK-12
When: Monday, October 29, 2007
