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 several mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. The dates and times are listed on each course registration page.
PLEASE NOTE: This course is offered only during the summer semester.

I love that I was able to create things in the course and implement them right away!C.F., Math Teacher
Loved having it focused on my content area.H.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., Math Teacher
Great course. Allowed for communication with others to see how each were using technology in math class.D.G., Math Teacher
The most valuable is being forced to spend time and find online resources that could work specifically for math. On a daily basis I would not do this so I'm grateful for this being a class.C.S.
The connections made with other math teachers and finding new resources.H.P., Math Teacher
i enjoyed having input from other students and learning about many of the "new" ways technology can be used in mathematicsD.B., Math Teacher
This course got the ball rolling on a few tech-related ideas I already had, and that I've now started on.B.M., 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
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
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
It was great and insightful into how to use technology in the math classroom.A.W., Math Teacher
Very helpful in learning about what other technology teachers are using effectively in their secondary mathematics classroomsK.F., Math Teacher
The course was one of the more reasonably paced classes I've taken. It was also one of the most relevant to my content area. With a class of fellow math teachers, we were all able to speak the same language.E.D., Math Teacher
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
