Research Summary
My research examines teachers' beliefs about mathematics, teaching, and proof and how this relates to their support for students' arguments in secondary mathematics classes. In my current study, CAREER: Learning To Support Productive Collective Argumentation In Secondary Mathematics Classes, funded by the National Science Foundation, I am following a cohort of secondary mathematics teachers through their oncampus coursework, student teaching, and into their first three years of teaching to examine how they learn to support collective argumentation in mathematics classes. As part of this work, I have been investigating how their identities as teachers of mathematics develop and grow through their experiences.
I am beginning to work with others in the College of Education and College of Engineering to explore how elementary teachers can support argumentation in their teaching of mathematics, science, and coding in the CALC (Collective Argumentation Learning and Coding) project.
