RCML 2021 Annual Conference
Reestablishing Connections for Mathematics Learning


The 48th Annual Conference of the Research Council on Mathematics Learning (RCML) will be held in VIRTUALLY and SYNCHRONOUSLY, on Friday, February 26 and Saturday, February 27, 2021. More details forthcoming.

Connections are requisite to mathematics learning. However, building and sustaining connections among content, contexts, and circumstances remains a challenge in our ever-changing society. Thus, this year’s conference theme is reestablishing connections for mathematics learning. The purpose of the conference is to share current research in mathematics education. The conference planning committee encourages proposals of completed research studies as well as works-in-progress. This is an excellent conference for faculty and advanced graduate students to report finished findings, share their evolving research and receive constructive comments on preliminary framings/findings.

All conference registrants must first join RCML before registering for the upcoming conference. RCML membership is for January-December of each year, and renewal for the following year begins December 1. For more details on RCML membership, please visit: Membership
