Research Affiliations and Current Projects

Thought Experiments in Mathematics Teaching (ThEMaT). An NSF funded project led by Dan Chazan at the University of Maryland and Patricio Herbst at the University of Michigan. The project uses innovative technological tools and mixed-methods research techniques to study mathematics teachers’ practical rationality and norms. - http://www.education.umd.edu/MathEd/Research/ThEMaT.html
The UNH Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program – with Sharon McCrone (PI), Neil Portnoy (Mathematics), Dawn Meredith (Physics), Judy Robb (Science Education). www.unh.edu/noyce
Curriculum Development Project, Technion, Israel. Co-Author of a team-written mathematics textbook series and teacher guides for grades 7-9 “Efshar Gam Aheret” (There is another way)(In Hebrew). http://matheducation.co.il
