QED is an online monthly series hosted by Distinguished Visiting Professor Ingrid Daubechies.

Professor Emerita Sybilla Beckmann earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania and taught at Yale University before her tenure of 32 years at the University of Georgia. Beckmann began her career doing research in arithmetic geometry, but she became interested in mathematics education as her children entered school. She developed courses for prospective elementary and middle school teachers that were designed to go deeply into the ideas of elementary and middle school mathematics; her textbook for such courses is now in a sixth edition. A member of numerous national committees and writing teams to improve math education for students and teachers, Beckmann has received numerous awards and honors for her work in education. She continues her research in mathematics education.
