Image Picker for Section 0
 

Dr. Michelle Cirillo was selected by the National Science Foundation to receive a Faculty Early Career Development Award for her work in secondary mathematics education. The $874,000 grant, Proof in Secondary Classrooms: Decomposing a Central Mathematical Practice, will support a five year study focused on improving the teaching and learning of proof in high school mathematics classrooms. Cirillo will make use of data and findings from a previous exploratory study to develop materials to be piloted and improved through cycles of lesson study. The goal is to publish a professional development program for high school teachers and develop a theoretical framework focused on decomposing this important mathematical practice.
