Role of visualizations in mathematical cognition


M.S., Psychology, UW-Madison

Research Description

My research revolves around how people reason with visualizations in math and statistics. Some of my projects include: (a) assessing how different diagrams influence error patterns in algebraic symbolization of story problems, (b) investigating how graphical framing cues influence problem solving accuracy and strategy use on constant change problems, (c) examining how students solve linear equations that have corresponding tape diagrams with varying visual features, and (d) exploring the effects of graphical depictions of variability in how people interpret graphs.
