This presentation looked not at how social media helps individual teachers, but the implications social media use by math teachers might have on teaching as a profession. Using a framework from Shulman (1998), affordances and constraints of social media for teaching are explored.

Poster for the SIG-RME poster session at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association, Philadelphia, PA. https://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3124825

This poster summarized the first year of a project to support teachers making curriculum adaptations to meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards. We use a design-based implementation research (DBIR) approach and focused on the rating of mathematical tasks using a set of principles for task quality. The poster was co-authored with +Heather Leary and +Bill Penuel. For more, see this blog post.

**Johnson, R.** & Thomas, S. (2013, April). *Statistical Reasoning in the Middle School*. Gallery workshop for the Annual Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Denver, CO. http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3124828

This presentation grew from work I did with Susan Thomas to see if middle school teachers were prepared to teach the statistics called for in the Common Core State Standards. (blog post, handouts, slide source)

Abels, M., Matassa, M. S., & **Johnson, R.** (2013, April). *Making Sense of Algebra with Realistic Mathematics Education*. Gallery workshop for the Annual Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Denver, CO. https://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3124831.v1

With the Annual Meeting practically in our backyard, we felt obligated to do an "Introduction to RME" type session. Mieke Abels from the Freudenthal Institute took the lead while +Michael Matassa Jr. and I co-presented. (blog post, slides pptx, handouts)

**Johnson, R.** (2011, November). *Efficient Polynomial Multiplication, Division, Factoring, and Completing the Square*. Gallery workshop for the Regional Conference of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Albuquerque, NM. http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3124834

I adapted my RME3 presentation to be more effective with an audience of teachers. Oddly, I don't think much of this polynomial work is all that important. But if it has to be taught, it ought to be done in a way that doesn't waste time, so cohesion across grades was key.

**Johnson, R.** (2011, September). *A Learning Progression for Multiplying, Dividing, and Factoring Polynomials*. Presentation for the 3rd International Realistic Mathematics Education Conference, Boulder, CO. http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.3124837

I'd taught polynomials with algebra tiles and area models using CPM and this was my attempt to organize that according to design theories of Realistic Mathematics Education.

This paper was my Presidential Scholar senior thesis at the University of Northern Iowa. I've been fascinated by the math wars and intersections of policy and curriculum ever since.
