## Nadine BezukCo-director, Professional Development CollaborativeDirector, Improving Student Achievement in Mathematics (ISAM) Curriculum Vitae (PDF) ## EducationPh.D., Mathematics Education, University of Minnesota M.A., Mathematics Education, University of Minnesota B.S., Child Development & Early Childhood Education, University of Pittsburgh ## Research InterestThemes of my professional work include professional development, equity, preservice
mathematics methods courses, and rational numbers. I have conducted research on the
effective teaching of rational numbers and on mathematics teacher enhancement activities
aimed at assisting teachers to focus on children's thinking and to help all students
succeed in mathematics. My current interests lie in (1) developing and conducting
professional development to support teachers in enhancing their teaching to help all
students succeed in mathematics and (2) developing programs for Elementary Mathematics
Specialists. ## SELECTED Publications
