Jenny Yun-Chen CHAN

In Fall 2022, Jenny moved to The Education University of Hong Kong! She is still collaborating with us at MAPLE :) 

Jenny's research examines the mechanisms and the cognitive processes involved in mathematical development. The first line of her work focuses on the effects of perceptual and contextual features in the environment on learning mathematics. The second line of her work investigates the influences of language and executive function skills on mathematical thinking and development. Through her research, she aims to contribute to the efforts in delineating the developmental pathways to mathematical thinking, and inform practices to better support learning and development.
