Math @ Duke



Sarah Schott, Associate Professor of the Practice and Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies

Sarah Schott

I am interested in math education research.  I have been involved in an NSF grant focused on the preparing  mathematics graduate students to teach undergraduate mathematics. Currently I serve as a project evaluator on an the NSF IUSE-funded grant, SUMMIT-P: A National Consortium for Synergistic Undergraduate Mathematics via Multi-institutional Interdisciplinary Teaching Partnerships. This grant is focused on the improvement of mathematics curriculum through better collaboration between math departments and the partner disciplines they serve in their courses.
