This new conference will be the first in a biennial series bringing together stakeholders from across the country to share knowledge about the understanding, teaching, and learning of mathematics for children between birth and eight years.

The focus of the 2017 conference will be:

Fostering access to mathematics for children who are
English Language Learners (ELLs)

Geared towards teacher educators, developmental psychologists, and early education researchers and practitioners, the goals of this biennial event will be:

  1. To build coherence in math education across the birth to 3rd grade span in the United States;
  2. To provide a forum for discussing new findings from research, recent trends in the field, and the connections between them; and
  3. To build networks of researchers and practitioners who will work together to inform and improve policy and practice.

Each conference will center on a focal topic, which will allow all participants to share, analyze, and plan collaborative work around substantive issues in the field of early mathematics.

The conference will be held in October 2017 at Erikson Institute in Chicago and is generously funded by a grant from the CME Group Foundation and the Heisig-Simons Foundation.

More information and registration will be made available in June 2017. To be updated when dates and more information is available on this specific event, please fill out the form below.
