DAVID ROSENGRANT

Dr. Rosengrant's research is an assistant professor of physics education at Kennesaw State University. He works primarily with future teachers both elementary and upper level science (chemistry and physics). His research is primarily with problem solving. Specifically, he focuses on differences between experts and novices and how we can help our novices develop expert like skills.

Part of this research involves the use of multiple representations (pictures, diagrams, graphs, charts). Finally, his work is now integrating eye-trackering. Eye-trackers allow researchers to investigate what subjects look at while completing different tasks which can then be used, in addition to other research methods to achieve a greater understanding of students' problem solving mentalities. This tool is now being used to analyze student attention in lectures.
