Research Interests for Jack Bookman
Research Interests: Mathematics Education
My research in mathematics education is currently focusing on three areas:
(1) how students learn mathematics, especially in technology rich environments;
(2) how graduate students develop their views and practices concerning teaching college mathematics; and
(3) evaluating the effectiveness of mathematics curricula.
