Biography and Education

Dr. Hamilton L. Hardison has a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education from the University of Georgia. His primary research interests lie in investigating students' mathematical thinking. His current research focuses on modeling how students quantify angularity, how these quantifications change over time, and how they vary across contexts. His additional interests include studying mathematical classroom discourse and discussing radical constructivism.
