Psychology Chair Susan Levine and co-investigators win 5 million dollar grant for math education research

A $5 million grant from the Heising-Simons Foundation to the the Development and Research in Early Mathematics Education Network, based at Stanford Graduate School of Education, will support a set of initiatives to identify more effective teaching practices, develop teacher-training resources, and provide free instructional materials for parents and early childcare providers to promote math learning during the preschool years. Two University of Chicago faculty — Susan Levine, chair of psychology, and Amy Claessens, a professor at Harris School — are members.
