Advancing Reasoning addresses the lack of materials for teacher education by investigating pre-service secondary mathematics teachers' quantitative reasoning in the context of secondary mathematics concepts including function and algebra. The project extends prior research in quantitative reasoning to develop differentiated instructional experiences and curriculum that support prospective teachers' quantitative reasoning and produce shifts in their knowledge.
About Me (Bio):
Kevin Moore is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Georgia. Kevin was born in Ohio and completed his B.S. and M.S. in Applied Mathematics at The University of Akron. He joined UGA after completing his Ph.D in Mathematics with a concentration in mathematics education at Arizona State University. His research interests include developing models of students’ and teachers’ ways of thinking in the context of precalculus and calculus ideas. Specifically, he is interested in understanding students’ and teachers’ quantitative and covariational reasoning including how to support their development of ways of thinking that entail these reasoning processes.
