After receiving an EHR Core Research Grant from the National Science Foundation In September of last year, BYU Mathematics Education associate professor Dawn Teuscher is putting her research into motion. “Because of the elite status of the NSF and the rigorous submission process, obtaining grants through this agency is very competitive,” said Department Chair Dr. Blake Peterson. “Obtaining this grant is a significant accomplishment for Dr. Teuscher, and for the department.” Dr. Teuscher–in conjunction with three other professors at Grand Valley State University, University of Arkansas Fayetteville, and University of Nevada Las Vegas–originally received the three year grant after submitting a proposal to measure how eighth grade teachers make curriculum choices, and explore the reasoning behind the activities that are included or excluded in lesson plans. Now, they’re getting to…
Dawn Teuscher has received a National Science Foundation grant to investigate middle school teachers use of mathematics curriculum along with three associates from UNLV, University of Arkansas, and Grand Valley State University. Together they were awarded over $1M for this three-year study that will include teachers from four states.
