Description of Research Project: 
Mathematics and Statistics are topics that many students struggle to learn. We hope to better understand how students process mathematical structure and map between representations, and how they represent and process statistical information both visually and conceptually.
Description of Student Responsibilities: 
Research assistants will help with data collection by running participants through experiments and will help pilot-test those experiments. Opportunities will be available to get involved in data analysis and experiment development/material creation. Having completed psych 100A and 100B is expected and 120A/120B is recommended. Applicants with experience in data analysis (e.g., Excel, SPSS, R) and programming (e.g., python, matlab, javascript) are preferred and will be given priority. Students must be able to commit a minimum of 8 hours a week for a minimum of 2 quarters. If interested, please email Lucy (lucy.cui@ucla.edu) your resume or CV, unofficial transcript, quarter availability and planned graduation date.
