Congratulations to Anand Bernard and Alicia Heninger who were the winners for their presentations at the Spring Research Conference held on March 19, 2016. Anand's presentation was on Middle School Teachers' Curricular Decisions and Reasoning - For decades curriculum materials have been used as a means to reform the way that mathematics teaching and learning occurs. But recent research on the effects of curriculum materials indicates that teachers do not necessarily use curriculum materials as was intended by the curriculum designers. Recently researchers have begun to examine how teachers transform curriculum materials into instruction and the effects of these changes on student learning. While much has been done to learn about this process, most studies have been very broad in scope and currently there is little known about specific decisions…
