We showcase specific results of two R&D projects – CueThinkEF+ and Our Mathematical World – and an analysis of six projects actively engaging students and educators in Inclusive R&D. The CueThinkEF+ team share the process and outcomes of deeply integrating teacher expertise as they sought to develop and improve a web-based learning system focused on rich mathematics problem solving and discourse. Then, the Our Mathematical World team share their journey in the development of a mathematics curriculum overlay in which 3rd-5th grade students design stories that center themselves as strong mathematical problem solvers.
After three years of Inclusive R&D, preliminary data suggest many of our approaches are improving mathematics learning. We are simultaneously increasing knowledge of the relationship between mathematics learning and EF skills. The attention to equity and educator voice in the R&D process is producing approaches that are aligned with classroom practice. This session engages participants in examining the findings from a portfolio thematic analysis, with perspectives from various teams, including both educators and researchers. We then discuss the implications and applications of this work with all session participants, focusing on promising opportunities for integrating EF and equity within math learning experiences, and ways researchers and educators can collaborate together to do so.
