## Welcome to the home of the UMaine Mathematics Education Research Group

We are UMaine faculty and graduate students who are interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics. We conduct research on how people learn and how people teach, with a particular focus on high school and university students and teachers.

Many of our members participated in the *2013 No Question Left Behind conference* hosted by the Research in STEM Education (RiSE) Center at UMaine. Presentations by group members included:
