Mathematics Education is the study of how people learn and teach mathematics meaningfully. One of its major goals is to develop theories of learning and teaching that will be foundational for strategies and curricular materials that improve the conceptual learning and use of mathematics. The math-ed group at ASU is particularly interested in mathematics learning and pedagogy at the high-school and early college levels and on the learning process in traditional, flipped class models and online settings. Content areas include precalculus, calculus, and the transition to advanced theoretical courses.
Our areas of expertise
Quantitative reasoning (both theoretical and empirical), strategies for student engagement in the learning process.
Focal areas of application include reforming the teaching of pre-calculus, calculus, transition to theory and proof, as well as reforming on-line delivery methods of instruction.
