Dr. Juli Dixon, Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Central Florida
We are excited to welcome Dr. Juli Dixon to the Math Summit as this year’s keynote speaker. Dr. Dixon is a Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL. She coordinates the award-winning Lockheed Martin/UCF Academy M.Ed. in K-8 mathematics and science program, as well as the Ph.D. in mathematics education program.
Dr. Dixon is an active researcher and has published many books, articles and textbooks. She focuses on deepening teachers’ knowledge of mathematics, facilitating “math talk,” and helping students justify and explain their own mathematical thinking. She will be accompanied by her teenage daughter, Alex, who will share the importance of mathematical discourse on her miraculous journey as a learner following a stroke.
