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.

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
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
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.
Making the databases with pros/cons to different tools and sites available for the math classroomB.D., Math Teacher
Well paced with different assignments that were usefulK.B., Math Teacher
I see so many of these online resources being used in my classroom.C.S.
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
