Tsveta Sendova, a Michigan State University mathematics educator and co-director of the Center for Instructional Mentoring, is one of several mathematics educators selected from across the country to attend the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy "Math Matters" meeting on Sept. 8.

Sendova will share MSU's contributions to active learning in mathematics and, in particular, the Center for Instructional Mentoring's focus on developing instructional skills in early career mathematicians.

“It is an honor to be invited to the Math Matters meeting and share some of the active learning pedagogies supported by the Center of Instructional Mentoring in MSU’s Department of Mathematics,” Sendova said. “I am looking forward to meeting award-winning math and science teachers, math educators and math education innovators from around the nation.”

During the meeting, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss strategies to teach math using active learning pedagogy, share best practices and network with colleagues engaged in math education. Attendees will also join a symposium on active learning hosted by the National Science Foundation to continue the discussion with more than 200 award-winning K-12 science and mathematics teachers.
