Tamara Moore



  • Higher Ed: Education, Researcher 


Tamara J. Moore, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Engineering Education at Purdue University. She has degrees in mathematics, engineering, mathematics education, and engineering education. Dr. Moore is a former high school mathematics teacher, and her research and teaching interests are centered on the integration of STEM concepts in the mathematics and engineering classroom. Her specific areas of research consider student learning through modeling in STEM contexts, development of STEM Integration curricular tools and activities for K-12 and post-secondary classrooms, and instructor implementation of STEM Integration.
