Gilbert Cuevas is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Texas State University. He is also Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Education from the University of Miami. Dr. Cuevas’ research focuses on the mathematics education of teachers, instructional strategies for English Language Learners, and the use of mathematical representations. He has published in the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education and other journals such as the Mathematics Teacher and Teaching Children Mathematics. His most recent works include algebra and pre-calculus textbooks as well as Navigating Through Algebra in Grades 3-5, published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and Integrating Mathematics and Literacy in Secondary Education (co-written with his wife). Dr. Cuevas has given scholarly presentations at regional, national and international conferences on topics of student assessment, language and equity in mathematics education. He has collaborated on research and teacher development projects with colleagues in Australia, Mexico and Central America. In 1990, he received an award from the Mathematical Sciences Education Board of the National Research Council for his contribution to efforts to increase the participation of minority students in mathematics education.
