Mathematics Potential Lab

Foundational to the work of our research lab
is the belief that
each child,
regardless of disability status, current level of

mathematics achievement and any other factor,

not only deserves access to quality mathematics support necessary to be successful but also has the potential to make robust gains

in mathematics understanding.

MPL Funding

 

MPL undergraduate research experiences are funded by external awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
We are grateful for NSF's support of undergraduate students as knowledge producers in STEM education.

See current external funding for more information about these projects.

 

MPL undergraduate research conference travel--to attend and present at the CEC research conference--and "aha! moments" that help students achieve their full potential are generously supported by the Cinelli Family Foundation.
We are extremely grateful for the Foundation's support of the MP
L mission.
