Special features or areas of interest that would be of interest to potential doctoral students: 

Boston University has strong connections to local school districts. Faculty are conducting research in curriculum (L. Dietiker), equity (A. Salinas), small group discussions in algebra (B. Zahner), number theory tasks (Z. Feldman) and classroom discussions (S. Chapin). We have a number of research projects that focus on the preparation of teachers at the elementary and secondary levels. Doctoral students have opportunities to be involved in funded research projects.  They are mentored in college teaching and have opportunities to work as teaching assistants and instructors.
