UK Faculty Contribute to Book on Common Core Math Standards

By Jenny Wells, Kristen Stauffer

Research contributions by faculty from the University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences and College of Education are featured in the 2013 release of "Common Core Mathematics Standards and Implementing Digital Technologies," published by IGI Global.

Carl Lee, UK professor of mathematics, Margaret Mohr-Schroeder, associate professor of STEM education, and College of Education doctoral graudate Robin Magruder (now a professor at Campbellsville University) were primary contributors.

Standards in the American education system are traditionally handled on a state-by-state basis, which can differ significantly from one region of the country to the next. Recently, initiatives proposed at the federal level have attempted to bridge this gap. "Common Core Mathematics Standards and Implementing Digital Technologies" provides a critical discussion of educational standards in mathematics and how communication technologies can support the implementation of common practices across state lines. Leaders in the fields of mathematics education and educational technology will find concrete examples, current research, and best practices for teaching all students regardless of grade level or regional location. This book is also part of IGI Global’s "Advances in Educational Technologies and Instructional Design (AETID)" book series.
