Maria Timmerman, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, published an article “Making Connections: Elementary Teachers’ Construction of Division Word Problems and Representations” in School Science and Mathematics, Vol. 114, Issue 3 (March 2014), 114-124.

Virginia Lewis

Dr. Virginia Lewis, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education, recently received notification that she has been awarded a state MSP grant entitled PREP: Proportional Reasoning Enrichment Project. During the summer of 2014, teachers will participate in two weeks of professional development workshops focused on developing their own understanding of rational number concepts and proportional reasoning. For one day in fall 2014, teachers will focus on using a wide variety of formative mathematics assessments. In spring 2015, teachers will participate in two full-day sessions focused on analyzing student work collected when using formative assessments. Teachers will share tasks, identify student misconceptions, and design and/or select additional formative assessment tasks that can be used to revisit concepts and processes.
