I have about fifteen years of experience developing programs and courses for helping people to learn mathematics and to engage in research. I design, develop and write about learning experiences for diverse people and situations: early algebra games for pre-K groups of children; Math Clubs and the Family Online Studies for family-centered communities; classes and seminars for k-20 and graduate students; and seminars, workshops and classes for pre-service and in-service teachers. I started several online educational communities, including the Natural Math network and the Math 2.0 Interest Group. I am a member of several hundred online educator networks. I have BS in Mathematics from Moscow State University, MS in Applied Mathematics from Tulane University and PhD in Mathematics Education from NCSU. My studies have been supported by grants, and published and presented nationally and internationally.
I live in Cary, North Carolina with my husband of twenty years and our daughter. I like to read science fiction and fantasy. My favorite computer games are MMORPGs and puzzles. Of the arts, I like drawing, folding origami, and drumming. For physical activities, I do amateur climbing and parkour. If you do a video conference with me, you are likely to see a dog and a parrot who live in my home office.
Welcome to the adventures in mathematics curriculum development! This course is offered for credit at Arcadia University graduate school, as well as for open participation from larger mathematics education community.
This fast-paced, highly interactive online course introduces participants to curriculum development ideas of the last decade, concepts from the near future, and tried-and-true classics. All course tasks happen live in vibrant, growing online educator communities. Research topics of the course contribute to current events and ongoing hot disputes in mathematics education. Throughout the course, participants will only use free and open educational resources, software and communication platforms, contributing to their teaching and learning toolkit. Course themes include:
