UW-Madison Professor Emeritus Tom Carpenter, whose student-centered ideas about teaching math to young children from all backgrounds and skill levels helped transform the field of mathematics education for students and teachers, died Aug. 7 from complications of Parkinson’s disease. Carpenter was best known for developing Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI), an approach to teaching that taps into how children intuitively think about math.
