Mathematical Problem Solving through Digital Making: Envisioning a Computationally Enhanced Mathematics Curriculum in Hong Kong’s Primary and Secondary Schools

Principal Investigator (2021-present). This study builds on the PI’s previously developed conception of “learning as Making” to envision a computationally enhanced mathematics curriculum. It will inform the “big picture” of how using computers might fundamentally change mathematical thinking, with an emphasis on mathematical problem solving (and more generally, STEM learning).

Funded by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong, General Research Fund ($638,908 HKD).
