Herbert P. Ginsburg, Ph.D., is the Jacob H. Schiff Professor of Psychology and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. Dr. Ginsberg is particularly interested in the development of mathematical thinking in young children and disadvantaged populations, as well as the assessment of cognitive function. Toward this end, he develops mathematics curricula and storybooks for young children, tests of mathematical thinking, and video workshops to enhance teachers’ understanding of students’ learning of mathematics. He has written, with Sylvia Opper, a widely used introduction to Piaget’s theory, as well as an introduction to clinical interviewing, Entering the Child’s Mind.
