Current Articles:

  1.  Why Students Rush to Calculus? (This unpublished article reports on a follow-up study to the study above, conducted jointly in 2010-2011 with Joe Rosenstein, Rutgers, which replicates the results of  a previous study the with a later cohort of Rutgers students and focuses on the question of why students took AP Calculus in high school.)
  2. Putting Brakes on the Rush to Calculus (This as-yet unpublished article is an abbreviated version of the two articles above, written jointly in 2012 with Anoop Ahluwalia.)
