Berry has extensive experiences in classroom observation and is the lead developer of an observation instrument, Mathematics Scan, which measures standards-based mathematics teaching practices.

Berry has collaborated on the Children’s Engineering Initiative in the Curry School of Education to use digital fabrication to incorporate engineering design principles into mathematics education. His most recent work has focused on using qualitative metasynthesis as an approach to understand the mathematics experiences of learners

Berry has published nearly 100 articles, book chapters, and proceedings. His articles have appeared in the Journal for Research in Mathematics EducationJournal of Teacher Education, and the American Educational Research Journal. Berry served on the Board of Directors of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics 2011–2014 and is a two-time recipient of NCTM’s Linking Research and Practice Publication Award. He was recognized as the 2011 Mathematics Educator of the Year by the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (VCTM), and received the University of Virginia’s All University Teaching Award in 2011.
