Biographical details

Learning and Teaching

I have been Director of the Numeracy Centre for 11 years, teaching first year students across a range of disciplines. I also teach a unit in the BTeach program offered jointly by Warawara and Early Childhood Education. I have enjoyed engaging with pre service primary teachers in their mathematical content unit MATH106 and spend a lot of my teaching time assisting students who struggle with the quantitative/mathematical aspects of their first year units. I have also recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary). My studies have helped to inform my teaching practice at university level as well.

Learning and Teaching Awards and Grants

Faculty of Science Teaching Award 2010, Project Leader of two Macquarie University Teaching Development Grants as well as team member of another two projects.

Research

In terms of education research, I am interested in student transition from learning high school mathematics to university level studies in units involving quantitative skills. I am also interested in the mathematical education of pre service primary teachers.
