Short Bio
Gerald Kulm is Curtis D. Robert Professor of Mathematics Education in the College of Education, Texas A&M University. Kulm's area of research is mathematics assessment and curriculum evaluation. Kulm re-joined TAMU in August 1999, coming from the American Association for the Advancement of Science where he was Program Director of Mathematics education at Project 2061. There, he edited the Blueprints for Reform and the report Middle Grades Mathematics Textbooks: A Benchmarks-Based Evaluation. Prior his position at AAAS, Kulm was a program officer at the U. S. Department of Education, and member of the mathematics education faculty at Purdue University, the University of Kentucky, and Texas A&M University. Kulm is the author or editor of more than a hundred publications on teaching, problem solving, attitudes, evaluation, and assessment in mathematics and science education, including Mathematics Assessment: What Works in the Classroom. He has served as a consultant and reviewer for many funding agencies, projects, publishers, and professional journals.
