Dorothy Y. White, an associate professor in the department of mathematics and science education, was one of 11 delegates from the U.S. invited to participate in the International Workshop of Mathematics Education in Dakar, Senegal.
The workshop, sponsored by the Quality Education for Minorities Network through a grant from the National Science Foundation, set a collaborative research agenda for math education in the U.S. and Africa. These studies will provide a strong underpinning for future improvements in mathematics education across the African continent. White spoke on a panel about preparing teachers of mathematics.
