Egan J Chernoff (@MatthewMaddux), PhD

 

Associate Professor, Mathematics Education

 

Egan J Chernoff is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Saskatchewan. His research utilizes logical fallacies (e.g., the fallacy of composition, the appeal to ignorance and others) and particular models from the field of cognitive psychology (e.g., attribute substitution) to account for prospective elementary, middle and high school math teachers' normatively incorrect, inconsistent and sometimes inexplicable responses to a variety of probabilistic tasks. He is also an ardent user of social media for mathematics education (you'll find his web log here). Egan is endlessly fascinated with Math Wars culture and, one day, hopes to (help) popularize the teaching and learning of mathematics and tell "the" story of mathematics education.

INTERESTS

Research Interests

By investigating the probabilistic content knowledge of prospective mathematics teachers, my research, in general, contributes to the (documented) limited research on teachers’ probabilistic knowledge. More specifically, my work has led to the development of a variety of theories, models and frameworks, which account for relative likelihood comparisons made by prospective teachers. Currently, I am incorporating more recent developments from the field of cognitive psychology (e.g., attribute substitution), which (I argue) have largely been ignored by those investigating probabilistic thinking and the teaching and learning of probability in the field of mathematics education; and, in addition, I am establishing that informal logical fallacies (e.g., the fallacy of composition, the appeal to ignorance and others) are an effective means to account for normatively incorrect, inconsistent, sometimes inexplicable responses to a variety of probabilistic tasks.

Other research interests include: cognitive psychology; heuristics, biases and fallacies; Math Wars; social media (for mathematics education); popularization; probability; risk.

Teaching Interests

The new math, the new new math, the math wars and, especially, exposing and exploring the false dichotomy (i.e., traditional versus reform) associated with teaching and learning mathematics by (1) modelling the reform approach to teaching and learning mathematics and (2) illustrating – as a character (cf. Colbert) – certain absurdities associated with the traditional approach to teaching and learning mathematics.

Mathematical Interests

probability, combinatorics and alternative base (especially base golden ratio) arithmetic.

Personal Interests

stand up comedy (e.g., Richard Jeni, Greg Giraldo, Jeremy Hotz, Louis C. K., John Pinette, Jeffrey Ross, Danny Bhoy, Tommy Tiernan, Mitch Hedberg, Kathleen Madigan), sports (e.g., squash, tennis, golf, ball hockey, Moksha Yoga, U of S Faculty/Staff Hockey League), Apple Inc. (e.g., iPhone, iPad, iMac, MacBook Air), walking (my dog), my dog Scout's behaviour, playing the lottery (e.g., Lotto 6/49), craft beer, television, podcasts (e.g., The Age of Persuasion), non-fiction (e.g., Chuck Klosterman), social media (for mathematics education).

Invited Keynotes and Colloquia

Chernoff, E. J. (2014, September). Is WISE Math “Strengthening Education in Math”? . Keynote Presentation for the 2014 Fall Conference of the Quinte-St Lawrence Mathematics Association (QSLMA) [Local Chapter of the Ontario Association for Mathematics Education (OAME)]. Kingston, ON.

  • Abstract. Having closely followed the "Canadian Math Wars" for over three years now, I, in this keynote, ask (and answer) the following question: Is the Western Initiative for Strengthening Education in Math (WISE Math), as their name suggests, Strengthening Education in Math? Join me for a presentation and a discussion of the hot topics in this debate (e.g., PISA results, new math, curriculum, WNCP, standard algorithms, constructivism, back to basics, calculators, JUMP math, randomized controlled trials, reform math, fuzzy math, textbooks, false dichotomy, drill and kill, spiral curriculum, long division, discovery, paper and pencil, cognitive science, direct instruction, outcomes, curriculum, non-standard algorithms, math facts, times tables, calculators and more).

Invited Public Lectures

Chernoff, E. J. (2014, January 22nd). What Social Media Has Taught Me About (Mathematics) Education. Joint Faculty of Education/Mathematics, Science and Technology Education Group Public Lecture. Queen's University. Kingston, ON.

Abstract. In this keynote, an overview of the current state of social media for education (with mathematics providing the subject area context and examples) will be presented. First, the different types of social media being used will be highlighted and detailed (e.g., social networks, blogs, microblogs, social bookmarking, media sharing, aggregators and discussion forms). Second, for each of the different types of social media, I will detail “who” (e.g., individuals and organizations) is using “what” (e.g., Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, Delicious, StumbleUpon, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, RSS, LinkedIn, Academia, Listserves and others). Third, I will discuss my use of and varying attempts to manage social media over the past four plus years. Lastly, with a better picture of the social media for (mathematics education) landscape, I will explain what social media has taught me about the teaching and learning of mathematics. With any time that remains, I look forward to answering any questions that may arise from the presentation. Worthy of note, my intention is that this talk is relevant and pertinent to all elementary school and secondary school teachers of today's learners and, further, relevant with the Ministry of Education's Literacy Numeracy Secretariat's initiatives for all students across all subject areas.

Invited Academic Conference Presentations and Workshops

Chernoff, E. J. (2014, July). Will the real Bayesian probablity please stand up!? Session 6A: Bayesian inference (probability) goes to school: meanings, tasks and instructional challenges - Topic 6: Innovation and reform in teaching probability within statistics. 9th International Conference on Teaching Statistics (ICOTS9). Flagstaff, Arizona, USA.

  • Abstract. Whether examined from a mathematical perspective or especially from a philosophical perspective, as Bayesian inference (probability) enters school mathematics curricula world-wide it definitely brings with it "some baggage." On its way to school, Bayesian inference (probability) will also pick up some baggage from the field of mathematics education (e.g., informal inference, "subjective" probability). Further adding to this baggage, mathematics and school mathematics are not one and the same. Through examining Bayesian inference (probability) from the perspectives of philosophy, mathematics, mathematics education and school mathematics (and popularization), this session will, ultimately, try to better establish what is meant by Bayesian inference (probability)...as it goes to school. In other words, "Will the real Bayesian probablity please stand up!?"

  • Abstract. Concepts and models of uncertainty and variability are at the heart of statistical thinking and analysis. Hence probabilistic concepts and thinking underpin all of statistics. Chance and Data developments should be intertwined, in harmony and both driven by data, real contexts and problem-solving. As in all of statistics, students bring to formal education in probability concepts and intuitions from everyday real experiences, and the teaching of probability needs to build on these and link formal notions to the everyday, to real contexts and – constantly – to data. In order to enrich conceptual understanding and underpin formal developments with experiential insights, sustainable representations of probability, integrated with data and statistical thinking, will render concepts accessible and more easily exemplified. These invited sessions will address much-needed reforms in teaching probability in harmony with statistics and will explore current innovations and new directions.
