Kaye is Foundation Chair of Mathematics Education and has taught and published extensively in mathematics education. Her research program, funded by ARC grants, has influenced practice both nationally and internationally. Her main areas of interest revolve around promoting mathematical thinking and problem solving, and studying students' understanding of key concepts e.g. in number and algebra. Since 1990, Professor Stacey has been continuously involved with many projects exploring how to improve secondary mathematics teaching by using information technology, including a recent project which examined the use of CAS (computer algebra systems) in Year 12 curriculum, teaching and final year school assessment.
