Welcome to the AERA Special Interest Group for Research in Mathematics Education.


SIG RME Happenings

JRME Mentorship Program

We have an opportunity for SIG-RME members who are doctoral and post-doctoral scholars.

The JRME Editorial Panel is piloting a program to mentor doctoral and post-doctoral scholars in the manuscript review process. As a first step in the process, SIG RME is surveying its membership to recruit interested scholars.

We will provide additional information about the mentorship program in the future.
