Personal profile


Dr. Jennifer Hall is a Lecturer in Early Years/Primary Numeracy. Prior to beginning her position at Monash University, Jennifer worked as a Post-Doctoral Scholar in Mathematics Education at the University of Calgary. This position focused on a large-scale SSHRC-funded research project entitled 'Mathematics Experiences, Images, and Identities', which sought to understand students' experiences learning mathematics in Canadian schools and the ways that these experiences influence students' images of mathematics and mathematical identities.

Jennifer's Ph.D. thesis, entitled 'Societal Views of Mathematics and Mathematicians and their Influence on Elementary Students', was completed in 2013. This research explored elementary students' views of and experiences with mathematics and mathematicians, and the ways that students' views may be influenced by parents' views, teachers' views, and popular media representations of mathematics and mathematicians.

Research interests

Dr. Hall's research focuses on the relationships that students form with mathematics, investigating how their in- and out-of-school experiences (e.g., with teachers, parents, and popular media) influence their views. She has a particular interest in exploring students' gendered relationships with the subject area and the ways in which gender-related research in mathematics education is conducted.
