Dr. Reynolds’ area of research is in the development of mathematical understanding. She has presented at international, national, and state level conferences with the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA), the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State (AMTNYS), the New Jersey Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (NJAMTE), the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New Jersey (AMTNJ) and the Research Council on Mathematics Learning (RCML). She has served on the executive boards of both NJAMTE and AMTNYS. Her latest published journal articles have been in Teaching Mathematics at the Middle School and Mathematics Teachers’ Journal.
Dr. Reynolds was awarded a St. Thomas Aquinas Faculty Development Grant in 2010 which supported a study of preservice teachers’ analysis of a textbook lesson on volume.
Dr. Reynolds has presented at numerous conferences, focusing primarily on how students and teachers build their mathematical understanding, particularly of fractions. She has reviewed articles forTeaching Mathematics in the Middle School and The Journal of Mathematical Behavior. She has also presented several professional development workshops for teachers and participated for several years in the Developing Mathematical Ideas Leadership Institute at Mount Holyoke College.
Her latest initiatives include working with other math educators to develop state certification for elementary mathematics specialists and to coordinate a Summer STEM enrichment program for middle school students that integrates both science and mathematics.
