New Paper: Levels of Abstraction in Math Problem Solving

As most of you know, one the many intellectual puzzles I ponder in my research and professional development work is trying to understand the relationship between the thinking processes highlighted in the computer science literature and the thinking processes used in mathematics — in particular, elementary mathematics. This morning, a new paper I co-authored with … Continue reading New Paper: Levels of Abstraction in Math Problem Solving

New paper: Elementary teachers and integration of CT

I’m proud to share a newly-released article in the Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, written with MSU faculty Aman Yadav and Christina Schwarz, entitled “Computational thinking, mathematics, and science: Elementary school teachers’ perspectives on integration.” This is among the first journal articles we have out based on the CT4EDU project, which has been the … Continue reading New paper: Elementary teachers and integration of CT

FIRST JOURNAL ARTICLE! Synergies and differences in mathematical and computational thinking

I have reached a milestone in my academic career: My first peer-reviewed journal article has been published! Written with my UChicago colleagues Liesje Spaepen, Carla Strickland, and Cheryl Moran, the article is called, “Synergies and differences in mathematical and computational thinking: Implications for integrated instruction.” It is currently available online (this link will get you … Continue reading FIRST JOURNAL ARTICLE!
