I write about:
- Meaningful learning and representational fluency (Fonger, 2012, 2014, 2019b)
- Learning progressions and learning trajectories for functional thinking in algebra (Fonger, Dogan, Ellis, 2017) and early algebra (Fonger, Stephens et al., 2018; Stephens, Fonger et al., 2017)
- Computer algebra systems in school algebra and instructional supports (Davis & Fonger, 2015; Fonger, 2014; 2018; Fonger, Davis, Rohwer, 2018)
- Linking research and practice through community, collaboration, and communication (Fonger, 2019a; Fonger, Reiten, Strachota, & Ozgur, 2017; Mayer, Huntley, Fonger, Terrell, 2019)
Please email me if you cannot find what you’re looking for. Thank you for engaging with my work.
