Dr. Larissa Schroeder received a B.S. In mathematics from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA (1989), a M.S. in mathematics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC (1991), and a Ph. D. in education (Curriculum and Instruction - secondary mathematics) from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT (2011). She joined the faculty at the University of Hartford in 2010.
Larissa is interested in issues associated with student understanding of calculus, and the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers. Her current research uses research methodologies from the fields of education and neuroscience to examine the effect of learning an expert-like strategy for selecting an appropriate integration technique on behavioral performance and neural activation patterns.
