Current and Recent Research Projects

Center for Mathematics Education of
Latinos/as (CEMELA)
The goal of CEMELA is to advance the field of mathematics
education by a) developing an integrated model that connects
mathematics teaching and learning to the cultural, social, and
linguistic contexts of Latino/a students and b) increasing the
number of mathematics educators and teachers with this integrated
knowledge to ultimately improve the mathematics education of
working class Latinos/as. To achieve this goal, CEMELA brings
together experts in mathematics education, mathematics, language,
and culture to conduct research in the areas of teacher education,
student learning, and parent learning.

Knowledge for Teaching Secondary School Mathematics (KnoTSS)
The goal of KnoTSS (an NSF-funded DRK-12 grant) is to investigate
the nature and processes of collaborative work between mathematicians
and mathematics educators who co-teach courses for future middle and
high school mathematics teachers
