Mary Mueller specializes in Mathematics Education. She was a NYC public school teacher for 12 years and uses this experience to prepare future teachers to be successful in a diverse society. Her research interests include the development of mathematical ideas and reasoning over time. She also is interested in tracing the co-construction of mathematical ideas as students work collaboratively on problem solving tasks. In addition, she focuses on in pre-service and in-service teacher preparation and development in mathematics. Her current research project, Cyber-enabled Design Research to Enhance Teachers' Critical Thinking Using a Major Video Collection, involves using well-designed teaching interventions based on a study of videos of children's expressed thinking to increase teachers' performance on measures of expertise that involve discussing and analyzing children's thinking and math content knowledge, and beliefs about mathematics and children's thinking.
