CAMTE Member Recognition Award Program
Deadline is June 1, 2017

The goal of the CAMTE Member Recognition Program is to celebrate the service of our members and to bring greater

attention to important, California-focused research on mathematics teacher-education. CAMTE will award up to 4 prizes annually- two CAMTE Research Awards and two CAMTE Honors Awards. Awardees will be selected through an Award Program Committee made up of CAMTE members. Awardees must be members of CAMTE and will be publicly recognized at either: CMC-South, CMC-North, or the AMTE Conference (at the awardee’s preference). Awardees will also be recognized in CAMTE’s newsletter. Each award includes: 1. A letter of commendation sent to the awardee and his/her supervisor; 2. a plaque; and 3. a cash award of $250.


CAMTE Research Award

The CAMTE Research Award is designed to encourage, recognize and publicize research on mathematics teacher-education

specific to the state of California. Research that addresses the complex issues that mathematics teacher-educators in California

must grapple with (including multicultural and multilingual classrooms; California’s highly competitive university system; and

pre-service teacher performance assessments) will receive special consideration. Award recipients will present their work during

CAMTE’s special session at the CMC-North or CMC-South Conferences (whichever conference they prefer) and will have a write-up

of their work included in CAMTE’s newsletter and/or their peer-reviewed journal. CAMTE gives two Research Awards annually. The

Research Award includes: 1. A letter of commendation sent to the awardee and his/her supervisor; 2. a plaque; and 3. a cash

award of $250.
