Karen has experience teaching middle school and high school mathematics and currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics education. Her research focuses on students’ learning of mathematics when using technology. Recent research has focused on students’ understandings of geometric transformations, the strategies students employ when using technology to solve mathematics problems, and the nature of students’ use of representations in technological contexts. Karen has served as both co-editor and editor of the Technology Tips column in the Mathematics Teacher journal and currently serves on the Editorial Panel for the journal ON-Math. In addition, she is a member of the Board of Directors for AERA’s Special Interest Group on Research in Mathematics Education (SIG-RME).

 

Hollylynne Stohl Lee, Co-Principal Investigator

Hollylynne’s work focused on statistics education began with developing the Probability Explorer software and conducting research on learners’ ability to reason about probabilistic phenomena through a simulation approach. Her current work focuses on preparing teachers of statistics to use innovative approaches and powerful technology tools to engage learners in building statistical understandings, particularly through the design and implementation of online professional learning environments. Her work has led to numerous books, research publications, and awards. In 2013 she was named a NC State University Faculty Scholar, and in 2014 received an Alumnae Association Outstanding Teacher award. She is a two time awardee of the National Technology Leadership Initiative Fellowship (2002, 2012), co-sponsored by the Association of Mathematics Teacher Education [AMTE] and the Society of Information Technology and Teacher Education.

 

Allison McCulloch, Co-Principal Investigator
Associate Professor of Mathematics Education
STEM Education Department
awmccull@ncsu.edu
https://ced.ncsu.edu/people/awmccull/

Allison has experience teaching mathematics at the middle school and high school levels and currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics education. Her research focuses on the use of technology tools in secondary mathematics classrooms, how they are promoted and perceptions of their use on students’ mathematical experiences. Specific interests include the role of local and global effect on adoption of technology use in secondary classrooms and the use of multiple representations in the teaching and learning of algebra and function concepts.

 

M. Asli Mutlu, Graduate Research Assistant
Doctoral Student in Mathematics Education
STEM Education Department
mamutlu@ncsu.edu

Asli is a doctoral student in mathematics education. Prior to starting the program and joining the team, she taught secondary mathematics for seven years in North Carolina. Asli has obtained a MS in Mathematics Education with a Minor in Statistics and a BS in Industrial Engineering in Turkey. As a statistics and calculus teacher, she believes all students can learn these subjects. Her research interests include undergraduate students’ learning experiences in calculus with respect to their majors.
