Statistical Modeling of Math Education Achievement
Learn about large-scale educational achievement data and techniques for predicting students’ math achievement. Involves data wrangling, intermediate coding in R or Python (mostly adapting existing code), and a focus on data visualization. Background in mathematics education and/or statistics preferred.
High School Mathematics Curriculum Development
For mathematics education students – modify and create Desmos Teacher activities to align with high school mathematics standards. Focus on data, modeling, and technology-assisted representations.
Middle School Mathematics Curriculum Development
Adapt activities from the Algebra through Visual Patterns curriculum for delivery in the Desmos Teacher Activities platform. Involves some testing with students and collaboration with math education researchers.
Other project ideas
Dig into the history of a K-12 math topic and write a paper / make a poster, create an original math video.
