Collegiate Mathematics Education Research Sampler


This session is a sampler across four studies. First, are results of a recent examination of Khan Academy use in community college algebra. Then come preliminary findings from a study on flipped approaches to teaching calculus at institutions in the California State University system. Early results from a third study, on a mini-course for faculty who teach future K-8 teachers, indicate there are special kinds of mathematical and cross-cultural knowledge needed for teaching future teachers. Finally, the colloquium will dig deeply into a fourth area: building attention to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion into mathematics graduate student experiences and preparation for their future work as teachers.


I grew up in and around Los Angeles. My bachelor’s degree is in theater and film-making. My first California teaching credential was in English, then a supplemental credential in math. I taught middle and high school math and English (mostly) for about five years before quitting, mortgaging the small house I’d bought using my teacher’s salary, and returning to UCI in math. Finished a math PhD at UCI and a mathematics education post-doc at Arizona State. My current work is in three areas: supporting people who teach math at all grade levels (including college) to do it better, supporting people who learn math to do it better, and supporting people who design policy for math teaching and learning to do it better.
