Hoyun Cho is an assistant professor of education (mathematics education) in the Department of Education who joined the Capital faculty in 2012. Dr. Cho earned his B.S. in mathematics at Saginaw Valley State University, his M.A. in mathematics education from Western Michigan University, and his M.Phil. in mathematics education from Columbia University. His Ph.D. in mathematics education under the direction of Dr. Vogeli B and Dr. Smith P. Dr. Cho's research interest begins with the assumption that all children have the potential to engage in rich and complex mathematics. His current research focuses on teaching mathematics with creativity and problem solving, developing instructional tasks that promote prospective teacher’s thinking and learning, developing students’ love of mathematics through problem solving, and using cartoon activities as a formative assessment. He is also interested in pre-service teacher education and professional development for in-service teacher.Dr. Cho currently serves as a manuscript reviewer and conference proposal reviewer on state, national, international, and research journals and conferences. He also serves as the co-editor of popular Cartoon Corner department in Mathematics Teaching in Middles School journal at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
