PROFESSIONAL ROLES

  • Researcher 

BIO

Mark Thames is involved in the professional training of mathematics teachers. His research investigates the practice of mathematics teaching and its improvement. Instead of developing a curriculum, a particular method of teaching, or an assessment to drive improvement, his research investigates the work entailed in teaching, the mathematical demands of that work, and the teaching of teaching. He is also interested in equitable teaching practice, measures of teacher knowledge and practice, and designs for instructional support and collective work on teaching. He directs the Secondary Mathematics Laboratory and collaborates with Deborah Ball, Hyman Bass, Robert Moses, Kevin Miller, and others on projects related to these interests.
