Nicole McNeil, Notre Dame's ACE Associate Professor of Psychology—along with her colleagues at the nonprofit research agency West Ed—received a $3.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences, which aims to improve students' mathematical achievement in elementary school and beyond. The grant will allow a large-scale trial of an educational intervention McNeil and her CLAD Lab research team have developed to boost math learning by helping students grasp the concept of mathematical equivalence.
