EDF 600: Educational Research

For the Educational Research Class, I chose to focus my research proposal on the relationship between Computer Science and Math. Most people assume that having a strong background in Math will help those studying Computer Science, and the research supports the claim. However, I am interested in how Computer Science helps with learning Math. Because Computer Science is still a relatively new field of academics, I believe there is still much more research that needs to be done in this area.

I am proud of my final project in this class because it was my most challenging assignment in the program. It was not because of the content, but because of the style. During this semester, I also decided to peruse a second Masters degree in History. My undergrad degree is a BA in History, so I am familiar with thinking like a historian and writing like a historian. Thinking of research from a scientific point of view plus writing in the APA format proved quite a challenge.
