EDU 952 Tech in Secondary Math
This course will analyze the benefits of available technology for secondary math instruction and assessment. Formative and summative assessment tools will be compared. Online remediation and practice in the mathematics classroom will be investigated and critiqued.
This course will offer teachers the opportunity to investigate online mathematics resources such as math tutors, math games, graphing calculators, equation solvers, assessment tools, and social media. Teachers will analyze the benefits of the available technology and look for ways to utilize what is available to improve their own lesson planning to increase learning and motivation in their classroom.
*Participants in this course will have a mandatory, synchronous, video conference session. The date and time are listed on each course registration page.

I loved being able to explore and see how different tools will work or not work in my class.L.M., Math Teacher
Very helpful in learning about what other technology teachers are using effectively in their secondary mathematics classroomsK.F., Math Teacher
It was great and insightful into how to use technology in the math classroom.A.W.
I thought this was a great course - I got to explore different tools that I could use and discuss them with teachers in my own content area. The reason I wanted to take this course is because we often have technology professional developments but they are always focused on other subject areas whereas this course was specific to math which was very valuable to me.J.F., Math Teacher
I appreciated the opportunity to work with only math colleagues as it gave me the chance to hear what others do in their classrooms & give me ideas. I also was grateful for the chance to look at different types of technologies that i could be using in my classroom and how to use them effectively.R.H., Math Teacher
More technology will be used, for sure. The course motivated me to try new things and explore the vast amount of technology available to use in our classrooms.A.B., Math Teacher
I like that this course was relevant to my specific teaching position. I was able to learn new things and have time to explore them through the collaborative effort of others taking the course.A.B., Math Teacher
Class moved at a great pace and introduced me to many online math tools that I can use in my classroom.J.W., Special Education Teacher
This was the most useful and practical grad class I ever took!S.W., Math Teacher
Exactly what I was looking for when it comes to using technology in the mathematics classroom.J.W., Math Teacher
I thought the work load was very appropriate, but beyond that, the projects and assignments were very relevant to me and my role as a teacher.R.P., Math Teacher
I feel like I have a better idea on how to use this technology in my classroom, and will be starting to implement lessons with it in the future.A.W.
I liked learning about new tools that I can use in my classroom. It took me out of my comfort zone.D.S., Math Teacher
I thought the course was great. I learned a lot and have used the assignments I created in my own classes.J.O., Math Teacher
This course was very useful since it was specifically for math teachers.A.D., Math Teacher
