Kentucky Center for Mathematics hosting annual conference March 6-8


The Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) is hosting its annual conference virtually via the Socio app March 6-8. This year’s theme is “Innovate: Visualizing New Realities.”

The KCM was established by the Kentucky General Assembly in 2006 to support diverse teacher and student populations across the Commonwealth. KCM firmly believes that mathematics must never stand in the way of a child fulfilling a dream and that mathematics is an effective vehicle for developing the skills children need for college and career readiness.

The conference will feature four keynote speakers including:

  • Robert Berry: Professor of mathematics education, the associate dean of diversity, equity and inclusion in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Virginia, and the immediate past president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM);
  • Carlos A. LópezLeiva: Associate professor in bilingual and mathematics education in the Department of Language, Literacy and Sociocultural Studies at the University of New Mexico;
  • Kanita K. DuCloux: Interim dean in the Mathematics Department at Western Kentucky University, where she has been a faculty member since 2011; and
  • Howie Hua: Math instructor at Fresno State who teaches math to future elementary school teachers.

Registration for the 2022 KCM Conference is free and includes:

  • Virtual entry to all three days of the 2022 KCM Conference, including the four keynote sessions and a variety of other breakout sessions.
  • Digital access to session recordings and materials after the conference’s conclusion (materials submitted at the discretion of the individual session speakers).

The deadline to register is Feb. 1.
