Research in Mathematics Education (RME) is a research and outreach unit in the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development that conducts and disseminates high-quality, evidence-based research to improve students' mathematics performance in Texas. Formed in 2011 under the direction of Dr. Leanne Ketterlin Geller, RME is focused on developing instructional systems for teachers. These systems include instructional practices and assessments that lead to sound decision-making by teachers as well as administrative leadership at the district, campus and state levels.
RME disseminates original research through professional development opportunities, an annual Research-to-Practice Conference held in North Texas, direct distribution of research reports, practical guides, and scholarly publications and presentations in local, national, and global venues.
The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk (MCPER) is dedicated to generating, disseminating, and supporting the implementation of empirically validated practices to influence educators, researchers, policymakers, families, and other stakeholders who strive to improve academic, behavioral, and social outcomes for all learners. Dr. Diane Bryant, director of MCPER's Mathematics Institute for Learning Disabilities and Difficulties serves as an RME researcher.
The Meadows Foundation is a private philanthropic institution established in 1948 by Algur H. and Virginia Meadows to benefit the people of Texas.
