Luke Tunstall

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Michigan State's Program in Mathematics Education. In the broadest sense, my scholarly work centers on quantitative literacy (QL), which typically connotes an ability and disposition to use quantitative skills in daily life. My dissertation explores the relationships between QL proxies and student practices.
