Biography

Mi Yeon Lee is an assistant professor of mathematics education in the division of teacher preparation in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University. She teaches undergraduate mathematics content courses and mathematics methods courses for pre-service teachers. She received a doctorate in mathematics education from Indiana University at Bloomington. Her formal experiences include teaching at K-8 levels in the U.S. and in Korea, supervising pre-service teachers in field experience, and reviewing a CCSSM Curriculum Alignment Tool.

Education

Ph.D. Mathematics Education, Indiana University-Bloomington 2013

Research Interests

Mi Yeon Lee's research interests are in teacher education, the development of pre-service and in-service teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching and teachers' professional noticing, students' fractional and algebraic thinking, project-based learning (PBL), STEM education, and the use of technology in mathematics instruction. She is investigating how to utilize teaching-based research on students' fractional and algebraic thinking. Lee's research focuses on how to design activities for STEM education and make connections between science, mathematics, and engineering through problem-based learning. Lee and her colleague are investigating in-service elementary teachers' use of a mathematical game to improve mathematical concepts of ELL students.

Guiding research questions:

  • How do students develop their fractional and algebraic thinking?
  • How do preservice teachers show changes their pedagogical content knowledge and beliefs after completing a mathematics methods course integrated with technology?
  • How is preservice teachers mathematical knowledge related to their ability to notice students unique thinking or their misconception?
