About Jessica Hunt

Math InterventionJessica Hunt is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education and Special Education.  She is also a Faculty Scholar at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation. Previously, she taught middle school mathematics in a technology demonstration school in Florida.

Jessica's research innovates math intervention for students with disabilities. She re-conceptualizes math intervention to afford students access to their own ways of reasoning.  Specifically, she designs and develops asset based curriculum materials and partners with K-8 students with disabilities, their teachers, principals, and school districts to test the effectiveness of the materials she develops.

Jessica examines the impact of curriculum materials based on trajectories of learning on students' engagement, math understanding, and interest in STEM more broadly.  Her work primarily focuses on fractions and ratios.
