Research Interests

My research interests are best described as the practical application of helping students, teachers, and researchers make better sense of the issues related to mathematical learning and encouraging dialog about quantitative methods. I am interested in the representational models that help middle grades students make sense of mathematics and how these representations, verbal, kinesthetic, written, or abstract function to facilitate broader and deeper mathematical understandings as students progress to increasingly more abstract mathematical ideas.
