Ami Maria Mamolo, PhD
Associate Professor, Faculty of Education
Ontario Tech University
My research is in educational mathematics. My work explores how to foster and elicit reasoning that can disrupt misguided and ingrained preconceptions about mathematics content, learning, and teaching. I'm especially interested in how creative and multi-modal approaches to math teaching and learning can be networked to encourage conceptual growth, meaningful engagement, and enjoyment with mathematics.
