Mustang Minute: Motion Capture Math

SMU’s Candace Walkington conducts research with Guildhall campers using motion capture to teach math. Walkington is an assistant professor in Teaching and Learning at SMU, specializing in mathematics education. Her research examines how abstract mathematical ideas can become connected to students’ concrete, everyday experiences such that they become more understandable. She conducts research on “personalizing” mathematics instruction to students’ out of-school interests in areas like sports, music, shopping, and video games.
