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 plan on continuing to implement the tech resources I learned about in the this course into my classroom!C.F., 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
It was great and insightful into how to use technology in the math classroom.A.W., Math Teacher
It was useful to see the various ways that technology can be incorporated into mathematics.M.F., Tech Specialist
