Research and Publications

Curriculum Development:

Most recently, I served on the authoring team of the Advanced Mathematical Decision Making course for high school seniors, developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin. 

I have served as author and reviewer for Agile Mind services, an online course support system which provides activities, instructional plans, and assessment for high school mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus, and AP Statistics).
