Nermin Bayazit is a clinical assistant professor of mathematics education in the Department of Middle and Secondary Education. She is also the program coordinator for the online master’s degree program in mathematics education for 6-12 mathematics teachers. Her area of research includes advanced mathematical thinking specifically proof and reasoning, mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) and teacher education. She is particularly interested in the role of mathematical definitions in constructing proofs, innovative approaches to enhance the mathematical knowledge for teaching, and disconnect between theory and practice during student teaching. Her research has been published in journals such as Teacher Education Quarterly and Journal of STEM Education.

Bayazit has been an active member of the mathematics education community. She has attended and served several local, national and international conferences in different roles. She is also the associate editor of the Journal of Urban Mathematics Education (JUME) since she joined to Georgia State University in 2009. She has served as the mathematics coach for local middle and high schools, and closely worked with mathematics teachers in their needed areas.
