Joint Panel

Joint Committee on Women Panel Discussion, organized by Jennifer Schultens, University of California, Davis; Thursday, 1:00– 2:30 pm. For 50 years, the Joint Committee on Women has served as a forum for communication among member organizations to enhance opportunities for women in the mathematical sciences. As an umbrella organization with representatives from the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges (AMATYC), American Mathematical Society (AMS), American Statistical Association (ASA), Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), Mathematical Association of America (MAA), National Association of Mathematics (NAM), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the JCW maintains a website to highlight policies and practices of member organizations. This panel will examine metacognition, the ways in which we approach mathematics and how this facilitates or impedes understanding. Confirmed panelists are Lakeshia Jones, University of Arkansas-Little Rock, Jo Boaler, Stanford University, Yvonne Lai, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and John Nardo, Oglethorpe University. Jennifer Schultens, University of California, Davis, will be moderating.
