Current Research: The Playful Mathematics Learning Project
The Playful Mathematics Learning Project (DRL # 1643313) studies children engaged with mathematics in an informal setting, the Minnesota State Fair, facilitated by mathematically knowledgeable volunteers. The Math On-a-Stick mathematical playground provides a place for children to engage with mathematics by exploring patterns, asking quantitative questions, and investigating shape and space to mathematize their play. In this project, we explore how these mathematical play stations invite and sustain interest and attention, and the forms of mathematical engagement that are afforded through their design.
