Research Scholar, HBCSE
Jeenath Rahaman is a doctoral student at HBCSE, working in the field of Mathematics Education and Cognition. Broadly her research work is an attempt to integrate the perspectives from the field of cognitive science and mathematics education to understand students’ learning of the mathematical concepts. Her dissertation work is about understanding students' conception of area measurement. Her research can be broadly classified into three strands: exploratory study, classroom-based study, and experimental study. The exploratory studies are done to understand the nature of students' conception of area measurement, while in the classroom based study, an instructional sequence is designed to understand how students construct the concept of area measurement in a classroom setting, and the experimental study is done to investigate how manipulatives supports the learning of area-measurement using eye-tracker as a data collection tool. Jeenath is also an active resource person for conducting workshops on learning mathematics using different physical and digital resources for teachers and students.
