Scholarship of Teaching


I am interested in various aspects of teaching and learning, including:

  • Active learning
  • Using writing in mathematics courses
  • Pre-service teacher education
  • Pedagogical use of the history of mathematics
  • Connections between mathematics education and other disciplines
