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
