AERA 2008 – Annual meeting

Yesterday, the 2008 annual meeting of AERA started. Although this is not only a mathematics education conference, it has a lot of interesting presentations for our field as well. A brief search through the searchable program gave 353 hits on individual presentations with the word “math” in the title. There are also several paper sessions with themes related to mathematics education. Today, for instance, there is a session entitled “Addressing Mathematics Education in Special Education“, which has the following participants:
