Research Interests

My main research interest is in the mathematical subject knowledge of primary school teachers. My doctoral work used design-based research to design an intervention programme to help student teachers develop the mental mathematics they need for teaching and the findings of this study has informed much of my teaching. A recent project I worked on explored what student teachers make of video material that is used in their training. A project that I'm currently involved in is looking at different types of reasoning that student teachers engage in how this knowledge and understanding can be deveIoped to support their teaching in this area. I am also interested in children’s mathematical work and in particular, how they develop number sense.
