Aditya Adiredja
Aditya Adiredja - Assistant Professor

INTERESTS
My research lies in the intersections between advanced mathematics, equity and cognition. I investigate ways that students make sense of challenging mathematical topics in undergraduate curriculum with a particular interest in the role intuitive knowledge in learning formal mathematics. I explore ways that our views of epistemology and learning determine what kind of knowledge and what kind of students get privileged in the classroom. I am also interested in broader equity and diversity issues in undergraduate mathematics education.

CURRENT AND RECENT PROJECTS
I have been investigating the role of intuitive knowledge in learning the epsilon-delta definition of a limit in calculus. One of my current projects investigates the role of intuitive knowledge in learning about basis in linear algebra.

Jennifer Eli
Jennifer Eli - Associate Professor

INTERESTS
My research uses the Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching framework as a theoretical lens to drive efforts in improve the preparation of middle and secondary mathematics teachers with particular focus on two interrelated research lines: (1) investigating the types of mathematical connections and teaching decisions teachers make when engaged in tasks of teaching, and (2) examining ways to leverage Complex Instruction to support mathematicians, mathematics teacher educators, and K-12 teachers in their work with future teachers.

Guadalupe I Lozano
Guadalupe I Lozano - Associate Research Professor, Director, External Relations and Evaluation

INTERESTS
My current work concerns the development and/or analysis of performance measures of mathematics knowledge. My primary focus is on undergraduate calculus, but I also work on projects connected to K-12 measures and outcomes linked to the new mathematics standards, particularly the Common Core.

CURRENT AND RECENT PROJECTS:
*Adapting the Classroom Video Analysis Approach as a Feasible and Scalable Measure of Common-Core-Aligned Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching
*Collaborative, Interactive-engaged Supplemental Instruction and Undergraduates' Performance in Calculus
*Harvard Calculus Consortium

Fred Stevenson
INTERESTS
For the past few years, my main interest has been in improving mathematics education throughout the city and region through the Center for Recruitment and Retention of Secondary Mathematics teachers. The Center originated as an outreach initiative of the University but it has now become a fully collaborative enterprise with the school districts. I founded the Center, directed it for many years, and continue to work with its staff and its various initiatives.

CURRENT PROJECT: CRR

Stephen Willoughby
Stephen Willoughby
INTERESTS
The improvement of teaching and learning of mathematics through research, through the writing of books and articles, through talks at professional meetings, and through political action of one sort or another.

CURRENT PROJECTS: Revision of a series of elementary school mathematics textbooks and writing a book for a general audience regarding things wrong with education and what teachers, administrators, and other citizens can do to improve conditions. Beyond this, I remain active in the affairs of NCTM and speak at various professional meetings.
