Project | CAREER: Designing and Enacting Mathematically Captivating Learning Experiences for High School Mathematics
This project explores how secondary mathematics teachers can plan and enact learning experiences that spur student curiosity, captivate students with complex mathematical content, and compel students to engage and persevere (referred to as "mathematically captivating learning experiences" or "MCLEs"). The study will examine how high school teachers can design lessons so that mathematical content...

Project | CAREER: Investigating Changes in Students' Prior Mathematical Reasoning: An Exploration of Backward Transfer Effects in School Algebra
This project explores "backward transfer", or the ways in which new learning impacts previously-established ways of reasoning. The PI will observe and evaluate algebra I students as they learn quadratic functions and examine how different kinds of instruction about the new concept of quadratic functions helps or hinders students' prior mathematical knowledge of the previous concept of linear...

Resource | Some Thoughts on Doctoral Preparation in Mathematics Education
Arguments for significantly improving doctoral programs have long been made, both nationally (Bender, 1997; Jackson, 1996; Golde & Walker, 2006; Walker, et al., 2007) and internationally (Cumming, 2010). The nature and variety of doctoral programs makes it difficult to single out specific changes that would be equally applicable to every discipline-specific doctoral program. Therefore, this...

Resource | A Recent History of the Production of Doctorates in Mathematics Education
Institutions in the United States have been producing PhDs in mathematics education for more than a century. Teachers College at Columbia University and the University of Chicago produced the first graduates in mathematics education in 1906 and 1912, respectively. In those institutions, doctoral students in mathematics education typically took courses along with doctoral students in mathematics....
