Lee University Assistant Professor of Mathematics Dr. Laura Singletary recently presented at the annual Research Presession of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference in Denver, Colo., along with colleagues from the University of Georgia.

The NCTM Research Presession brings researchers and mathematics educators from all over the world together to examine current issues in math education, interact with other scholars, and share research.

Singletary’s presentation, “Examining How Teachers Support Collective Argument-ation,” focused on collective argumentation and the teacher’s role in supporting students’ reasoning, emphasizing disciplinary practices of mathematics.

“We were able to put forth our teacher support for argumentation framework in order to examine how teachers influence the development of mathematics and support students’ reasoning in the mathematics classroom,” said Singletary.

Singletary joined Lee’s faculty in fall 2012. She earned her doctorate in mathematics education from the University of Georgia and was awarded the Presidential Graduate Fellowship.

She received her master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Lee University. While studying at Lee, Singletary was a Centennial Scholar and recipient of the departmental mathematics award.

Singletary is currently pursuing an interdisciplinary graduate certificate in qualitative research.
