Description: |
The Postdoctoral Training Program in Mathematical Thinking, Learning, and Instruction focused on math education and provided opportunities for five fellows to focus on a range of scientifically rigorous methods, including data analysis techniques that support causal inference within experimental, quasi-experimental, and observational designs. Fellows worked with faculty on a range of research projects, including ones focused on understanding mathematical cognition by analyzing videos of classroom instruction and learning; exploring mathematical learning opportunities during pre-college engineering courses and through multilevel analyses of school district data and student-level outcomes; understanding student reasoning in mathematical contexts; exploring teachers' use of visual scaffolding, primarily in gesture, in algebra classes and the resultant influence on mathematical learning; and the use of secondary analyses in which hybrid multilevel and structural equation modeling methods are applied to the PISA mathematics literacy data.
