Biography

Marilyn Carlson is currently researching the teaching and learning of precalculus level mathematics. Her current funded project is developing and studying a model for supporting PhD students in mathematics and mathematics education to assume leadership roles in adapting undergraduate courses in mathematics. She is working to identify key variables that contribute to faculty acquiring knowledge of how students develop fundamental reasoning abilities and understandings. She is also studying the process by which teachers shift from teacher centered instruction to focus on students’ thinking; she is attempting to identify variables that contribute to teachers’ leveraging student thinking and formative knowledge of their students’ learning during instruction. Carlson is concurrently continuing to investigate curriculum interventions designed to support students in conceptualizing and representing covarying quantities.

Education

PhD, 1995, University of Kansas
