I am interested in developing a nuanced understanding of how young children and their caregivers participate in everyday learning activities and how they construct shared understandings through their talk. My research has focused on how families engage in number talk during play and cooking. Using qualitative and quantitative approaches to analyzing human interaction, I am working to uncover how families engage in math conversations. Guided by my work developing resources to promote family math engagement, I also examine the impact of learning tips on family interaction.
