In my current projects on linking research and practice in mathematics education I am called to create illustrations and visual manifestations of ideas. I have also found this lens to be supportive in my teaching. In reading student papers, where ideas are still forming, I ask: Can you draw this idea? Create a sketch to illustrate […]Read More Can you draw it? Sketchnotes 101

In working on this, I came to the following conclusions: I am the leader of my own lab. My lab is focused on […]Read More Dr. Nicky. The Scientist.

Today I sat down to write and found myself sketching out ideas for how the ground the revision of a paper. I found myself then re-reading an article on publishing by 3 amazing women in #mathed that further inspired my learning Here is what I am learning about playing the publishing game… Contribution.
