Children's learning lab

In the Children's Learning Lab, we study how children learn and how to improve their learning. Our research focuses on learning key concepts and problem-solving procedures in mathematics, with an emphasis on experiences that promote learning. For example, what roles do comparison or generating explanations have in promoting learning of concepts and procedures? We conduct this research in both laboratory and classroom contexts to better understand learning processes.
