Since 2005, Preparing to Teach Mathematics with Technology (PTMT) project has developed research-based materials for mathematics teacher education focused on using technology tools for teaching major topics in middle and secondary mathematics in Algebra, Statistics, and Geometry. The PTMT team has produced high-quality materials, all available for free, that have been used to prepare over 6,000 teachers to use technology in their mathematics classrooms.
In 2018, the PTMT project has expanded to focus on Examining Students’ Practices with technology. PTMT-ESP is a five-year cross-institutional project that will develop and examine the effectiveness of video case modules aligned with the Algebra materials. PTMT-ESP will also continue to build and sustain the community of technology-using mathematics teacher educators who use PTMT-developed materials in the preparation of teachers.

PTMT Spring 2020 News and Updates
n this newsletter, we'll share a snapshot from an activity in our new "Qualitative Analysis of Representations of Functional Relationships" module. We are excited to include a new section entitled “News from the TUMTE Community,” where members of the TUMTE community can submit news from their ongoing work related to preparing teachers to teach mathematics with technology. Next, we provide some updates from our sessions at AMTE back in February and new articles from the PTMT team. We end with some general information about how to follow us on social media and how to contact us if you are interested in piloting materials.

New $1.8 Million NSF Grant to Support NC State Education Project on Math Teacher Preparation
Hollylynne Lee, professor and university faculty scholar at the NC State College of Education, will use the grant to continue her team’s work on improving the way preservice mathematics teachers prepare to enter their classrooms, specifically how to utilize students’ mathematical thinking in technology-rich environments.
