Abstract

The purpose of this document is to share materials, in an organized way, from the graduate student professional development (PD) program in the Mathematics Department at Duke University. Our goal is to show how different program components come together to create a larger support system for graduate students as they prepare and begin to teach.

Jack Bookman

Professor of the Practice Emeritus of Mathematics

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.

Victoria S Akin

Assistant Professor of the Practice of Mathematics

I am an Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Mathematics Department. I work primarily on teaching and math education. I am currently interested in the retention of women in STEM fields and the effect of intervention programs on girls' attitudes and beliefs about math. I am co-directing the Girls Exploring Math (GEM) program as part of this research effort. Additional interests include grading systems, facilitating whole-class discussions, and the impact of professional development programs on graduate student teaching.
