Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Fonger researches how students learn mathematics, with a focus on students' learning of algebra and algebraic thinking across K-12 schooling. Her work involves the development of learning progressions and learning trajectories to characterize students' learning of mathematics in relation to curricular and instructional supports for learning. Nicole is also exploring how mindfulness practices might be effectively integrated into mathematics teaching to support learners struggling with math anxiety. These areas of scholarship are grounded in an agenda that values linking research and practice to bridge theory and instructional practice.
