About the author:

I conduct research in the areas of the learning and teaching of early mathematics and computer applications in mathematics education. My most recent interests are in creating, using, and evaluating a research-based curriculum and in taking successful curricula to scale using technologies and learning trajectories.

What I want to achieve:

Along with Julie Sarama, I have built educational environments that have helped young children move from confusion to comprehension in mathematics, experiencing mathematics activity as meaningful and joyful. I want to make this type of experience common among each and every child, especially those most at risk, while maintaining an impact that is both sustainable and scalable.
