N3:  Noticing Numeracy Now!
 

We are the Kentucky Preservice Teacher Preparation Group consisting of faculty from 5 universities across the Commonwealth of Kentucky as well as the Kentucky Center for Mathematics. Our group was created to facilitate discussions about elementary mathematics education through Kentucky.
















Our research is focused on the Professional Noticing skills of Preservice Elementary Teachers through the lens of the Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning and Pedagogies of Practice.


We are currently funded through the National Science Foundation, Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM (TUES) Award #1043667, 1043656, 1043831
