Merav Weingarden is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematics Education in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of New Hampshire, United States.

She holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.

Her research interests include improving the communication about teaching mathematics among researchers, teacher educators and teachers.

More specifically, she focuses on developing pedagogical tools for improving pre-service teacher learning to teach mathematics.

She is currently working on a long-term project that investigates beginning teachers' expertise to teach mathematics via reasoning and proof.

Her work focuses on the socio-cultural aspects of this process and on developing a conceptual framework to theorize, based on the commognitive theory, learning opportunities for reasoning and proving.

In her P.hD. research, Merav developed a novel tool – The Realization Tree Assessment (RTA) tool for improving the communication about Teaching Mathematics for Explorative Participation.

She established the Young Israeli Researchers in Mathematics Education (YIRME) group, and since 2020 she has led this group and its activities.

Merav graduated M.Sc. in Mathematics Education (Summa cum laude) in 2017 from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.

She served as a teaching assistant in a variety of courses in the Faculty of Education in Science and Technology at the Technion, a professional development instructor for secondary mathematics teachers, and a secondary mathematics student-teachers mentor. In addition, she was a high school mathematics teacher.
