Research Interests

I’m interested in the integration of digital technology into mathematics teaching. I am currently looking at teachers’ development and use of digital tasks using Desmos, an online graphing calculator. I am also exploring how these tasks reorganize mathematical practice, particular how digital tasks may or may not support empirically-based mathematical thinking in students. I am also currently working with Nathalie Sinclair on an SSHRC Insight Development Grant to study early learning of multiplication using the iPad application TouchTimes. Finally, I am exploring the mathematization of social issues as a way of giving students a mathematics experience that is connected to the world they live in.
