**Short Bio for Roger Howe: **

Roger Howe taught and did mathematics research at Yale University for over 40 years, until his retirement in 2016. He is now the William Kenan Jr. Professor Emeritus of Mathematics from Yale. Upon retirement from Yale, he accepted the position of Curtis D. Roberts Professor of Mathematics Education in the College of Education at Texas A&M University.

Dr. Howe served on a multitude of committees studying mathematics education, including several that produced major reports on mathematics education since 2000. He has reviewed texts and instructional materials for several publishers and curriculum developers. He served on the Committee of Education for the American Mathematical Society, the Steering Committee for the Park City/IAS Mathematics Institute, the U.S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction (2006 - 2016), and on the Executive Committee of the International Commission on Mathematics Instruction (ICMI) (2010-2016). In 1997-98, Dr. Howe served as a Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Sciences. He is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and received their Award for Distinguished Public Service in 2006.

Dr. Howe’s mathematical research investigates symmetry and its applications. His work in mathematics education is directed towards clarifying the conceptual development of mathematical ideas through the K-12 curriculum. He has focused especially on place value, the role of word problems, and productive
