Research Interests

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