Assistant Professor of Education Studies, University of Oregon

Jennifer Ruef studies and teaches best practices for learning and making sense of mathematics. Her decades of experience as a classroom teacher inform her research, and in turn, her research is reflected in her work with mathematics teachers and students. Jennifer’s research centers on issues of social justice and equity. This includes studying how students identify themselves, or are identified by others, as being “good at math;” and the ways in which students and teachers learn to make sense of mathematics and construct convincing and powerful arguments.
