The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) has announced that Amanda Jansen, associate professor in the University of Delaware’s School of Education, is the recipient of the 2014 AMTE Early Career Award.
AMTE is the largest professional organization devoted to the improvement of mathematics teacher education in grades K-12. Its early career award recognizes a mathematics teacher educator who has made distinguished contributions and shows exceptional potential for leadership in mathematics teacher education within the first 10 years of their career.
Jansen was nominated for her important role in developing UD’s K-8 mathematics teacher education program, her use of innovative teaching methods such as the dual number line representations as a new approach to teaching pre-service teachers about division with fractions, and her collaboration with Alfinio Flores, Hollowell Professor of Mathematics Education, to develop an innovative mathematics course for mathematics education doctoral students.
Jansen will be honored with the award during the 18th annual AMTE Conference in Irvine, Calif., in February 2014.
