Our faculty pursue a variety of research interests, which they share within our students' coursework. Their work includes:

  • Children's mathematical thinking
  • Discourse and discourse analysis
  • Integers / negative numbers
  • Cognitively guided instruction
  • Argumentation in secondary mathematics classrooms
  • Collective argumentation
  • Beliefs in teaching practices

As a result, our students graduate with experience in essential and emerging fields of mathematics education.

Another unique aspect of our programs are the amount of time our students spend in classrooms working with students. Starting with one-on-one experiences, our students move through the program building on their abilities and students' ideas, culminating with teaching and managing multiple classrooms during a student-teaching experience.
