USNC/MI Members Host 2016 Park City Seminar Series Organized by USNC/MI past chairs Gail Burrill and Rick Scott, the week-long international seminar, "Bridging Policy and Practice in Mathematics Education around the World," was held as part of the 26th annual Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) International Seminar on July 5 - 8, 2016. The mission of the Seminar is to bring together teams of two educators, a university mathematics educator or policymaker, and a secondary teacher from a small number of nations representing a cross-section of the regions of the world to discuss major issues in mathematics education policy and practice. The seminar, focused on Statistics, brought teams of one mathematics education policymaker and one practicing secondary mathematics teacher from each of six following countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras, Paraguay, and the United States. Most of the experts were from Central and South America.
The IACME General Assembly was held during this time, and leadership for the 2015-2019 period was selected. USNC/MI member Patrick Scott was re-elected to his position as IACME Second Vice President for the next four years. A decision was also reached to hold IACME XV in Medellín, Colombia, in 2019.
