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
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
It was helpful to have some devoted time to explore technology options for my classroom.B.M., 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
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 enjoyed this class, and it forced me to take some time to investigate other technologies.K.G., Math Teacher
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
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.
Well-organized, thorough, and truly helpful for any secondary math teacher. I am so happy I took this course!C.F., Math Teacher
Well paced with different assignments that were usefulK.B., Math Teacher
This will impact my classroom on a daily basis.D.G., Math Teacher
I loved being able to explore and see how different tools will work or not work in my class.L.M., Math Teacher
Exactly what I was looking for when it comes to using technology in the mathematics classroom.J.W., Math Teacher
I enjoyed this course because I learned about different sites/apps out there that I was not aware of that will benefit my students.B.D., Math Teacher
All of the new online and assessment resources I discovered from fellow classmates.T.E., Math Teacher
