Equipping teachers with the right classroom tools goes a long way in helping students succeed in mathematics. For more than a decade, Preparing to Teach Mathematics with Technology (PTMT) has helped teachers integrate the latest technology in their lessons to better engage students.
Karen Hollebrands, Hollylynne Lee and Allison McCulloch, all professors in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education (STEM Ed.) Department, lead PTMT in collaboration with the Friday Institute. Each has worked on developing materials integrating mathematical tasks, technological tools and pedagogical strategies for middle and high school teachers. These materials focus on teaching algebraic, geometric and statistical topics with technology.
