Dr. Carole Greenes
Associate Vice Provost for STEM Education
Arizona State University Tempe, Arizona
Carole Greenes is Associate Vice Provost for STEM Education, Professor of Mathematics Education in the College of Technology and Innovation and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Director of the Practice, Research and Innovation in Mathematics (PRIME) Center at Arizona State University.
From 2007 – 09, she served as Dean of the School of Educational Innovation at ASU.
Prior to 2007, Greenes was Professor of Mathematics Education and Associate Dean for Research and Advanced Academic Programs at Boston University.
has authored more than 70 articles and 300 programs and books, three mathematical musical mysteries, and one musical history of mathematics.
Among those programs are Groundworks: Algebraic Thinking, Algebraic Reasoning Modules, Problem Solving Think Tanks , and Zupelz: A Game of Logical Reasoning.
Greenes was chair of the Mathematical Sciences Advisory Committee of the College Board, chair of the Massachusetts Mathematics Framework Committee, president of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics, editor of the NCSM monograph series for leaders, member of the steering committee for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Navigations Series, and editor of NCTM’s 2008 Yearbook, Algebra and Algebraic Thinking in School Mathematics.
She serves on several advisory boards, including three Ready to Learn DOE-funded projects, and is co-chair of the ASU Preparatory Academies Advisory Board.
She is on a variety of advisory boards in addition to MOEMS, including the Rodel Foundation, the SfAZ STEM Center, and Arizona University Public Schools Initiative.
She is a member of NCTM, NCSM, NSTA, TODOS, AERA, ISTE, and ATME.
is recipient of the Herbert Wilde Award for outstanding contributions to education, and was inducted in 2003 into the Massachusetts Mathematics Educators’ Hall of Fame.
In 2011, she
received the Ross Taylor/Glenn Gilbert Award from NCSM
for outstanding leadership in mathematics education.
Greenes’ research is primarily in the areas of algebraic thinking and reasoning methods.
From 2003-2008, she served as co-PI of the NSF MSP, Focus on Mathematics (FOM), and studied secondary-school students’ understanding of the fundamental algebraic concepts of linearity and linear functions.
assessment instrument was translated and administered to students in French-speaking Canada, Israel, Korea and Taiwan, as well as to grades 8 – 11 students in Massachusetts and Arizona.
Results served as the basis for the design of the Algebraic Reasoning Modules for open platform distribution.
Currently Greenes is Principal Investigator of the NSF-funded, Prime the Pipeline Project: Putting Knowledge to Work that engages high school students and their mathematics and science teachers (as learners) in scientific villages, where they collaborate with scientists in the solution of long-term integrated projects that involve the use of workplace technologies, and the Helios Foundation-funded STEM in the Middle that focuses on the engagement of middle school teachers and students in the exploration of interdisciplinary projects that require application of science, technology, mathematics, and engineering design concepts and principles for their solutions.
