Committee Charge
1/28/2011To stimulate effective change in the teaching of undergraduate statistics and data science, especially at institutions where the department of mathematics bears the primary responsibility for the teaching of courses in these disciplines. The Committee should examine and make recommendations concerning: individual course offerings; teaching practices; faculty qualifications; course sequences in support of various options; use of technology; connections with other departments that use or teach statistics or data science; requirements for undergraduate majors in these disciplines; preparation of elementary and secondary teachers in these disciplines, and; adapting current undergraduate curricula based on changes within these disciplines and in K-12 education in these disciplines.

The committee will coordinate with the MAA through non-voting liaisons appointed by the MAA Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) and the Special Interest Group of the MAA on Statistics Education (SIGMAA Stat Ed). The committee will coordinate with the ASA through non-voting liaisons appointed by the ASA Education Council and the ASA Section on Statistics and Data Science Education. Composition: The Committee is composed of 6 members: three members from the American Statistical Association (ASA) and three members from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). Each year, each organization will appoint/reappoint one member from their organization for a 3-year term. Members can serve for a maximum of two consecutive 3-year terms. The Chair is a member of the Committee and serves as chair for two years. The Chair is alternately appointed by the ASA and MAA.

Committee Charge
8/01/2012To lead initiatives, advance policy, monitor projects, and plan activities that support those who are responsible for the mathematical education of teachers. Through this work COMET is charged with informing and advising the MAA leadership and the MAA membership on matters that relate to the mathematical education of teachers and coordinating with other organizations focused on the mathematical education of teachers, including the NCTM who will appoint a representative to this subcommittee. The mathematical education of teachers includes pre-professional preparation and professional development in mathematics and in the teaching of mathematics, K - 12. Accordingly, COMET encourages timely renewal efforts of mathematics courses and programs designed for prospective K- 12 teachers. COMET also promotes thoughtful participation of MAA members in schools and in professional development programs that enhance the mathematical understanding of in-service K-12 teachers.

Committee Composition
