The Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research (CMSER) coordinates research, teacher education, curriculum development and implementation, and dissemination efforts in mathematics and science education, and fosters rich partnerships with educational institutions and organizations throughout the Milwaukee metropolitan area. On behalf of School of Postgraduate Studies, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI), we warmly invite you to participate in mathematics and science education conference that will be held on May 5th, 2018 in Bandung – Indonesia. Since participants may come from different countries with variety of backgrounds, the conference is an excellent forum for participants to exchange research findings and ideas on mathematics and science education and to build networks for further collaborations.

During the 1960s and 1970s several national curriculum projects were funded, developed, and offered across the K-12 years. This continued into the twenty-first century, with many programs that provide ways to meet the visions of the National Science Education Standards supported by the National Science Foundation. Unfortunately not many of these ideas are in typical textbooks offered by the major publishers, who, understandably, are more interested in sales and offering what teachers, schools, and parents want. These textbooks are often quite different from what reform leaders and cognitive science researchers envision for an ideal science curriculum.
The book also provides a detailed examination of how we know what we know about children’s learning of science-about the role of research and evidence. This book will be an essential resource for everyone involved in K-8 science education-teachers, principals, boards of education, teacher education providers and accreditors, education researchers, federal education agencies, and state and federal policy makers. It will also be a useful guide for parents and others interested in how children learn.
In 2011, the average base salary of middle and high school teachers was approximately $53,000 for mathematics teachers and $54,000 for science teachers. Professional development for science teachers is critical to meeting new curriculum standards. 1997.
