Recipient, 2010 TENSOR grant renewal from the TENSOR Foundation through the Mathematical Association of America for the project "Women and Mathematics for Future Teachers."

Recipient, 2007 TENSOR grant from The TENSOR Foundation through the Mathematical Association of America to mentor two women faculty in the teaching of a course for future K12 teachers on Women and Mathematics; make course materials readily available to others; recruit course graduates to share with other future teachers the knowledge they gained from the course about (a) women's contributions to mathematics throughout history and (b) K12 gender equity issues; and prepare course graduates as workshop leaders for an math/science career day for junior high girls.

Recipient, 2004 SENCER grant to support an interdisciplinary faculty team to develop a math core course based on modeling environmental problems in Los Angeles. SENCER stands for Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities, an NSFfunded initiative to improve science education by teaching math and science through real world problems.
