Biography
Guadalupe (Guada) Lozano grew up in Argentina. She is an Associate Research Professor of Mathematics, the Director for the Center for University Education Scholarship (CUES), and a Founding Member of the STEM in HSI Working group at the University of Arizona. Guada’s current work brokers intersectional spaces for institutional change in university teaching and learning, including transforming STEM education at HSIs. Trained as a mathematician, Guada has been part of many K12 and undergraduate initiatives which inform her current work. They include: the writing of recommendations for deploying activelearning practices in mathematics, the writing of reform calculus curricula, assessing the impact of activelearning pedagogies on conceptual mathematics learning, and the establishment of crossinstitutional faculty collaborations for streamlining the transition from community colleges to the university. Guada is actively involved with local, national, and international organizations committed to growing equitable practices in public schools, higher education, and STEM professions.

Usable Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics: Further Exploration of the Classroom Video Analysis (CVA) Instrument. ZDM  The International Journal on Mathematics Education.More infoIn this study we further explore the nature of usable teaching knowledge in mathematics. First, we present a model of usable teaching knowledge. Second, we examine how the design of the Classroom Video Analysis (CVA) Instrument as measure of usable knowledge relates to the proposed model. The CVA is based onteachers' ability to analyze teaching events depicted in short video clips. Third, using data from three different CVA assessment scales (on fractions, ratio and proportions, and variables, expressions, and equations), we explore the structure underlying teachers' scored responses to the video clips, aggregated at the clip level, to uncoverthe latent processes that generate teachers' responses. For all three scales we found that a single dominant factor, possibly teachers' usable teaching knowledge, explained up to two thirds of the variation in teachers' clip level scores. We consider the results inlight of our model of usable teaching knowledge and generate testable hypotheses for further study.

A biHamiltonian structure for the integrable, discrete nonlinear Schrödinger system
. Physica D: Nonlinear Phenomena. doi:10.1016/j.physd.2006.04.014More infoThis paper shows that the AblowitzLadik hierarchy of equations (a wellknown integrable discretization of the Nonlinear Schrodinger system) can be explicitly viewed as a hierarchy of commuting flows which: (a) are Hamiltonian with respect to both a standard, local Poisson operator J and a new nonlocal, skew, almost Poisson operator K, on the appropriate space; (b) can be recursively generated from a recursion operator R (obtained by composing K and the inverse of J.) In addition, the proof of these facts relies upon two new pivotal resolvent identities which suggest a general method for uncovering biHamiltonian structures for other families of discrete, integrable equations.

In what ways has the Common Core philosophy been latent in such curricula and teaching practices? And how may such connections guide or come to bear upon the training of secondary teachers?In this talk I will outline partial answers to these questions with a focus on college readiness in the time of the Common Core. I will illustrate similarities and differences between college entry courses curricula and practices, and the CCSSM with a primary focus on the function domains.Recent views of college freshmen and secondary school teachers on streamlining the transition from high school to college will be weaved into the content discussion.
