UK Professor Visits Warner

Dave Baker of the University of Brighton, United Kingdom, visited Warner for a week this month to speak on mathematics practices, meet with faculty, and visit Rochester area classrooms.

Baker, a senior lecturer in mathematics education and a research area leader in school based teaching and learning, is currently investigating ways that homes and communities affect primary school children's attainment in mathematics and literacy. He spoke about this research at a colloquium: Researching Home and School Mathematics Practices in the Early Years: A case study from the UK.

While in Rochester, Baker also visited Warner doctoral student Lynn Gatto's second grade classroom at Rochester's School 28 and the BUBL Project at the Rochester Museum and Science Center.
