Welcome to the home of the UMaine Mathematics Education Research Group
We are UMaine faculty and graduate students who are interested in the teaching and learning of mathematics. We conduct research on how people learn and how people teach, with a particular focus on high school and university students and teachers.
Recently, many of our members participated in the 2012 Integrating STEM Education Research into Teaching: Knowledge of Student Thinking National Conference hosted by the Research in STEM Education (RiSE) Center at UMaine. Presentations by group members included:
- Blaisdell, R. (2012). Teacher knowledge of student difficulties with the concept of limit in calculus. Poster presentation (PDF).
- Conlogue, A. (2012). Solving problems using recursion: When students use recursion and why. Poster presentation. Poster presentation (PDF).
- Dorko, A. (2012). Calculus students’ understanding of volume in non-calculus contexts. Poster presentation (PDF) and contributed talk (PowerPoint slideshow).
