Becoming Involved

One way to become more involved in your association is to be a part of one of AMTE’s standing committees. If you would be interested in any of the following committees, Electronic Communications, Related Conferences, Membership, or Nominations and Election, or on other task forces as the need arises please notify President-Elect Karen Karp at karen@louisville.edu.



Election Time

This year we will elect a Secretary and two Members-at-Large. Soon you will receive your ballot. Please return your  pre-addressed ballot so that our election is a true representation of the opinion of  the membership of AMTE.



Business Meeting Items

The AMTE Business Meeting is held each year at the Annual Conference. If you have items you would like the Executive Committee to consider for inclusion in the agenda, please forward your ideas to Francis (Skip) Fennell at ffennell@mcdaniel.edu.



NCTM 2004 Proposals

At the time this Newsletter went to press we were waiting to hear about AMTE’s sponsored sessions for the 2004 NCTM Annual Conference. We are assuming we will still have designated slots. If you are considering submitting a proposal to AMTE please email to the chair of Related Conferences Tom Rowan at  trowan7@comcast.net by January 15, 2003 and he will forward details as they become available.

Seventh Annual Conference

Atlanta, GA

January 30 – February 1, 2003


The Seventh Annual Conference of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) will be held in Atlanta, GA, from Friday, January 31, through Saturday, February 1, 2003. Conference activities will begin with a Pre-conference Symposium on Thursday evening, January 30, 2003.



The conference registration fee includes admission to all sessions and the Browsing Room. In addition, a large portion of the fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon snack on Friday and continental breakfast and lunch on Saturday. With your conference registration, you can renew your membership in AMTE by paying the $35 dues ($17.50 for students). The Conference Registration Form  inserted in this newsletter details the categories of registration. Notice that registration costs vary by postmark date.




The AMTE Pre-conference Symposium will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2003 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. A separate registration fee of $40 will be charged and includes dinner. Please note that on-site registration is not available for the Pre-Conference Symposium. Attendance is limited to the first 100 registrants.




To reserve your room for the conference, call either phone number listed below. Be sure to mention the AMTE conference when you call. It is important that we fill our room block at the hotel, because this helps us reduce other conference costs such as meeting room rental. We encourage you to make your reservation to stay at the conference hotel. The hotel’s reservation deadline is Wednesday, January 8, 2003.

AMTE Pre-Conference Program

Thursday 30 January 2003




Thursday 1:30–4:30 p.m.

Pre-Conference Technology Workshop


Mathematics and Handheld Devices


Joe Garofalo, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

Beth Cory, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

Agida Manizade, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

Brian Sharp, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

Maria Timmerman, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA


Graphing calculators are being used primarily in mathematics courses, but the latest handheld devices have the potential to be used in all subject areas. Many predict that such devices will become the tools most students will use in the future.  This session will demonstrate a variety of handheld devices (with different platforms), equipped with graphing calculator, word processing, spreadsheet, printing, browsing, and other educational software.  This hands-on session will focus primarily on secondary mathematics.



Attendance at the Pre-conference Technology Workshop is free, but pre-registration is required. The Workshop is limited to the first 20 registrants.



Thursday 5:30–8:30 p.m.

Pre-Conference Symposium & Dinner


Studying Teacher Learning from Cases and Other Practice-Based Materials


Margaret S. Smith, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

Mary Kay Stein, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA

Edward A. Silver, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI


For the past several years we have been developing practice-based materials for the education of mathematics teachers under the auspices of the NSF-funded COMET (Cases of Mathematics Instruction to Enhance Teaching) Project.  Recently, we have begun to use these materials in teacher education settings and to systematically study their implementation and impact.  Drawing on data collected from a course on proportionality in which various kinds of practice-based materials were interwoven, we will engage participants in analyzing data that focuses on both the processes of course enactment (e.g., videotape of a class session, work completed by teachers) and the pre- and post-knowledge of course participants.  The goal of the session is to use the specific example from the proportionality course to discuss what teachers might learn from cases and other practice-based materials, how they might learn it, and what constitutes evidence of learning.


5:30-7:00 p.m. Presentation

7:00-8:30 p.m. Dinner



A separate registration fee of $40 is required for the Pre-Conference Symposium and Dinner. Please note that on-site registration is not available for this event. Attendance is limited to the first 100 registrants.

Call for Manuscripts

in Technology and Mathematics Education


Preparation of tomorrow’s teachers to use technology is one of the most important issues facing today’s teacher education programs. The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) is pleased to co-sponsor a refereed academic journal on this timely subject, Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal). This new journal is available in an electronic version on the web at www.citejournal.org


Technology is pervading schools. Mathematics educators play an important role helping teachers integrate the teaching of mathematics with technology. Prospective and inservice teachers must be prepared to advance the profession by infusing technology into their teaching, and mathematics teacher educators must model that process.

The CITE Journal provides a forum for a dialog about best practice in preparation of mathematics teachers who use technology. Articles may address any area of technology and teacher education. Articles dealing with both preservice and inservice issues are welcomed. A wide range of formats and approaches to scholarship are accepted, including qualitative research, quantitative studies, conceptual and theoretical pieces, case studies, and professional practice papers.

Articles will be published in electronic format, as well as in corresponding versions (PDF) suitable for print. Technology is a rapidly evolving medium. An electronic format allows articles to be published in a timely fashion and permits inclusion of color graphics, photographs, and other media. Manuscripts may be submitted online through the journal web site. Inquiries about potential manuscript topics are welcomed.



If you have queries about potential articles or are interested in reviewing articles for the journal, please contact one of the co-editors for CITE-Mathematics, Denisse Thompson & Gladis Kersaint [Thompson (or Kersaint) @tempest.coedu.usf.edu.]
