Jordan Fractions Lab
Taylor-Paige (Guba) Guba is a Ph.D. in Education student specializing in the Learning Sciences in the School of Education at the University of Delaware. Broadly speaking, she is interested in math cognition, critical and creative thinking, and linguistic cognition, primarily in middle or high school students. Her past research experiences include working with 5-year-old children on pattern abstraction, teaching critical thinking through induction, and investigating the effects of attentional momentum on addition verification.
As of her second semester at UD, she has completed or is working on projects about critical thinking skills in Algebra I textbooks, the the relationship between fraction arithmetic and number line understanding, and the relationships between creativity self-efficacy and career choice.
She graduated from Indiana University in May 2021 with degrees in Cognitive Science, Jewish Studies, and a minor in Linguistics.
