Across Cultures


Mazatlán, México, 2020
June 2-6, 2021 (was October 14-18, 2020)


Join us in beautiful Mazatlán, Sinaloa, México from the 2-6 June, 2021 (was 14-18 October, 2020) for the 42nd Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME-NA 42). After twelve years, we are happy to welcome back the conference to Mexico and have the honor to host our colleagues from Canada and the USA

Theme of the conference: Across cultures

We consider that a way to promote the exchange and enrichment of mathematics education research is to look at its manifestations across different cultures, places and contexts. This is the focus of our 42nd conference, where we hope to have an encounter of cultures, as well as forms of research in mathematics education:

Across various cultures...

  • of languages, nationalities, communities, ethnicities,

  • of genders

  • of indigenous people and migrants;

  • of different abilities;

  • of different generations;

  • of teachers, researchers, policy-makers and parents;

  • of school types: urban vs. rural, multigrade, etc.; and

  • of classroom cultures and modalities: from traditional teaching to “new” classroom cultures: e.g., flipped classrooms, distance education, etc.;

  • of technologies and tools: from pencil-and-paper, to the digital and connected;

  • of math and other disciplines (multi-, inter- and trans-disciplinarity): e.g., STEAM, math and environmental sciences, etc.;

  • of research: different strands of PME-NA research, including cognition, neuroscience, ethnography, and new types of research.

In other words, we look forward to an academic exchange that will reflect the ample diversity of ways of teaching and learning of mathematics, and of the tools and communities involved in mathematics education; as well as explore how the differences in cultures imply a need to consider how research results can be taken into account in varying contexts.

Through all of the above, we hope to honor the major goals of PME-NA.
