Juli K. Dixon

Juli K. Dixon, PhD, is a professor of mathematics education at the University of Central Florida (UCF). She coordinates the award-winning Lockheed Martin/UCF Academy Master of Education in K–8 mathematics and science and the PhD in mathematics education. Dr. Dixon is focused on improving teachers’ mathematics knowledge for teaching, so they can communicate and justify mathematical ideas and also expect their students to explain their mathematical thinking.

Prior to joining the faculty at UCF, Dr. Dixon was a secondary mathematics educator at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a public-school mathematics teacher in urban school settings at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels.

She is a prolific writer of K–12 books, textbooks, book chapters, and articles. A sought-after speaker, Dr. Dixon has delivered keynotes and other presentations throughout North America. She is coauthor of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Go Math for K–8 Mathematics and AGA and Integrated Mathematics for High School. She is also coauthor of Solution Tree’s Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching book and video series. Especially important to Dr. Dixon is the need to teach each and every student. She shares her personal story of supporting her own children with special needs to learn mathematics in an inclusive setting.

Dr. Dixon received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and education from SUNY Potsdam, a master’s degree in mathematics education from Syracuse University, and a doctorate in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in mathematics education from the University of Florida.
