Chao receives NSF CAREER award
Urban elementary schools often teach mathematics in ways that are unconnected to the real mathematics that children see in their families and communities. Theodore Chao, assistant professor of mathematics education, College of Education and Human Ecology, received a five-year National Science Foundation CAREER award to study how digital storytelling opens up space for children's voices to tell their own mathematics stories and use their own experiences to share and learn about fractions. Chao’s project connects mathematics, mobile video, social media and equity-oriented education.
