Current Research Interests

·
Impacts
of Mathematics Outreach

o
When
college students engage public school students in mathematics outreach who gets
the benefit, why and how? What impact does this kind of activity have on
students’ mathematical identities?

·
Preparation
of Mathematics Teachers

o
How
do effective mathematics teachers of emergent bilingual students know and teach
mathematics, and what experiences in college can help preservice teachers to gain
this knowledge?

·
Statistics
Education

o
How
do college/dual enrollment statistics instructors perceive confidence intervals
versus p-values as tools for making statistical inference and how do these
perceptions impact their teaching and their students’ appreciation for and understanding
of statistics?
