My name is Anna Fricano DeJarnette.  I am an assistant professor of mathematics education at the University of Cincinnati.  I received my M.S. in mathematics and Ph.D. in mathematics education from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.

My research is in the area of student learning with technology.  I am interested in how students understand and talk to one another about mathematics when they use computer programming environments.  I study students' mathematical conceptions and discourse to explore the ways that students' use of programming environments can become part of how they do mathematics.
