<h1>Math Education EdD student recognized by NSF</h1> <p><em>Justin Seventko receives Honorable Mention for proposal to the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program</em></p> Justin's proposal, <em>An Investigation into Millennial Preservice Mathematics Teachers' Beliefs and Practices Regarding Equity-based, Culturally-relevant Mathematics Pedagogy</em>, was chosen for honorable mention by the <a href="http://www.nsfgrfp.org/" target="_blank">National Science Foundation</a>. The fellowship is extremely competitive, with over 16,000 applications received from graduate students across all of the STEM disciplines and only 2,000 fellowships awarded. Justin's proposal was chosen as one of those 2,000 honorable mentions. His research proposal sought to explore and inform potential field experiences in urban school districts that could make concrete connections between the multicultural experiences of the millennial generation and culturally-relevant pedagogical practices.Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:33:23 -0400http://www.montclair.edu/news/article.php?ArticleID=14371&ChannelID=220@ISSUE: How can math be made more interesting for students?

For</div><div>this thesis, we let H be a complete graph on three vertices with</div><div>exactly one looped vertex. Homomorphisms from a graph G to this H</div><div>correspond to partial proper two-colorings of the vertices of G. We</div><div>are mainly interested in finding which graphs maximize the number of</div><div>partial two-colorings given a graph with n vertices and m edges. The</div><div>general result is given for all graphs with m+1 at most n as well as</div><div>some enumerative results for some very common graphs.</div></div>Wed, 30 Apr 2014 17:57:05 -0400http://www.montclair.edu/news/article.php?ArticleID=12857&ChannelID=220Doctoral Program Mixer and Information Session for Current Students

http://www.montclair.edu/news/article.php?ArticleID=11517&ChannelID=220
<h1>Fellowship in Mathematics Education Ed.D Program Available</h1> <p><em></em></p> <p>We have several doctoral assistantship opportunities available to full time students at Montclair State University in the Mathematics Education Ed.D. program for 2013-2014. Our program is intended for students interested in various facets (curricular, pedagogical, psychological, philosophical, etc.) of mathematics education. In addition to taking coursework, our students work actively with doctoral faculty to refine their research interests throughout their course of study. Recent graduates of the program have secured employment at four-year universities as mathematics educators, been promoted to leadership positions in their school districts, and have pursued research affiliated with institutes. </p><p>The doctoral assistantships would involve 9 credits of coursework each semester and 20 hours per week of work on a research project under faculty supervision. It is expected that students with an assistantship not hold any other employment. The renewable appointments are made for one academic year September 1st through June 30th. Doctoral assistants receive a $15,000 stipend and a tuition waiver for up to 24 credits for research assistantships and $20,000 stipend (no tuition waiver) for teaching assistantships. Students would need to apply formally to the program and indicate that they are interested in the doctoral assistantship. Once they have been admitted, we will conduct phone or in-person interviews to determine suitability for the assistantship. We are currently accepting applications for full-time and part-time studies (though part-time students are not eligible for assistantship) for the Fall semester. </p><p>Please contact Dr. Munakata, <a href="mailto:munakatam@mail.montclair.edu">munakatam@mail.montclair.edu,</a> or call 973-655-7256, if interested. </p>Thu, 06 Jun 2013 09:46:54 -0400http://www.montclair.edu/news/article.php?ArticleID=11517&ChannelID=220
