Research Description:

Lockwood's primary research interest involves undergraduate mathematics education, particularly studying how students think about and learn combinatorial topics. She has put forth a model of student's combinatorial thinking that especially emphasizes the role of sets of outcomes in effective counting. Other research in this area includes exploring student-generated connections among counting problems through a lens of actor-oriented transfer and determining the effectiveness of systematic listing in counting. Through two NSF-funded grants, She is currently investigating studentsâ€™ generalizing activity as they solve advanced counting problems, and she is studying ways in which having students engage in computational activity can help them solve counting problems more successfully. Two additional collaborations and areas of research include studying the role of examples in proof and considering the relationship between mathematical content and mathematical practices at all levels.
