I worked on the project that developed the first version of the Geometer’s Sketchpad and was a founding staff member of the Math Forum until it ended in 2017. Currently I consult with schools, districts, and states, and speak at conferences, encouraging a focus on sense-making and leveraging students’ idea. I am an author of McGraw Hill Education’s new K-5 textbook series,Reveal Math, and work at the 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education, continuing the Math Forum’s research and outreach. My very first Ignite talk, “Ever Wonder What They’d Notice?", has been used in countless PD session around the world.
