Amy Roth McDuffie conducts research on the professional development of preservice and practicing teachers in mathematics education. She focuses on professional growth toward more student-centered approaches that incorporate current research and theory on how students come to understand mathematics.
Dr. Roth McDuffie regularly teaches methods of teaching mathematics courses, including Mathematics Methods for Elementary and Middle School for undergraduate preservice teachers and graduate Masters in Teaching students, and Research in Elementary Mathematics Education for practicing elementary teachers who are Masters in Education students.
