Research Reports

Research reports can be either theoretical or empirical and can address any issues relevant to the goals of the organization. Papers that address the theme are especially encouraged. During each 40-minute session, the author makes a 20-minute presentation, and 20 minutes are allotted for discussion with the audience. An individual may serve as the primary presenting author for only one research report. A 7-page paper will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Short Research Reports

Short Research Reports (formally Short Orals) sessions will consist of four 15-20-minute presentations on a similar topic followed by 20-30 minutes of audience discussion. A 2-page summary of each short oral presentation will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Poster Presentations

A poster presentation is a visual display depicting a research project, software development, curricular innovation, educational program, or other items of interest to members of PME-NA. Posters will be available for viewing throughout the conference, and time will be set aside for participants to discuss posters with the author(s). A one-page abstract of the poster will be included in the Conference Proceedings.

Working Groups

A working group provides an opportunity for individuals to come together for a significant period of time to discuss issues pertaining to a particular area of research. Working groups will meet multiple times during the conference to facilitate extended interactions among group members. Working groups from PME-NA XXVII can submit proposals to continue their work if it is the consensus of the organizer and members that the group can be productively sustained for another year. Discussion groups from PME-NA XXVI and PME-NA XXVII can submit proposals to become working groups. One paper from each working group will be included in the Conference Proceedings.

Discussion Groups

A discussion group is a precursor to a working group. A discussion group is formed for one year in order to articulate issues and develop an agenda for future work. If the organizers and participants determine that there is sufficient interest in the group, the organizers can submit a proposal for a working group the following year. One paper from each discussion group will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
