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. 

Did you notice that our lab logo
looks like a fraction? 
Let us know if you'd like a sticker of our logo - we'd love to send you one!

Can You Guess the Fraction?

Our lab ran a fraction contest, and it made it to the CLASSROOM! Students and colleagues submitted their fraction guesses.
