Research on Mathematics Instruction at Community Colleges

Date and Time: April 20, 2021 3:00–4:30 PM EST
Location: Online

This session highlighted collaborative research by community college mathematics education practitioners and researchers who seek to understand and improve the teaching of mathematics at community colleges. While most of the community college research focuses on student outcomes in mathematics at these institutions, this session showcased the work of four groups of scholars who focus on key aspects of mathematical instruction.
