UNO Arts and Sciences Speaker Series Continues Feb. 25 with Math Lecture
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Arts and Sciences Centennial Speaker Series continues Thursday, Feb. 25, with a lecture by John Lannin, an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Columbia. His talk - "Algebra and Algebraic Reasoning: What do our students know?" - will begin at 2:30 p.m. in 115 Durham Science Center.
Event organizers say the talk may be of special interest to those involved in evaluating UNO's general education requirements. The event is free and open to the public.
Lannin received his master of arts for teachers of mathematics degree from UNO and a doctorate in mathematics education from Illinois State University. At the University of Missouri, he currently studies K-12 student algebraic reasoning and mathematics teacher knowledge development. Lannin is a recipient of the 2009 Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators Early Career Award, which recognizes his contributions to research and teaching.
The yearlong speaker series is part of the UNO College of Arts and Sciences' centennial celebration, which highlights the college's many departments and alumni. Established in 1909, Arts and Sciences is the university's first college and largest academic unit.
