Interview – Dr. Susan Gerofsky

Dr. Susan Gerofsky, Assistant Professor

“So much of schooling in mathematics is static, with learners sitting silently and moving only eyes and fingers.

What if we took mathematics education outside the four walls of the classroom, and let learners work with resources that creative mathematicians use all the time: movement, physical models, observation of patterns in nature, life experiences and embodied imagination?”

Dr. Gerofsky’s Research Interests:
• Embodied mathematics learning
• Multisensory, multimodal, performative and arts-based mathematics pedagogies
• The language of mathematics education
• Gesture and genre studies of curriculum
• Garden-based learning across the curriculum
• Eco-poetic inquiry
