Research Discussion with Dr. Jessica Rodrigues: Each Child Can Learn Mathematics: Helping Students at Risk for Mathematics Difficulties

Dr. Jessica Rodrigues will discuss her intervention research working with elementary students who are at risk for mathematics difficulties and mathematics screening for the identification of struggling learners. She will also share how her research agenda was developed and the lessons learned as she progressed for a doctoral student to a postdoctoral fellow to a new Mizzou faculty member. Dr. Rodrigues will also share her research studies that are currently in progress and studies that are in development that offer opportunities for collaboration with undergraduate and graduate students interested in research.
