Preparing to Teach Mathematics with Technology - Examining Student Practices

The Preparing to Teach Mathematics with Technology [PTMT] project is a cross institutional project that originated at NC State and has been working for over a decade to support mathematics teacher education through developing materials and contributing research understandings about the knowledge and practices of preservice and inservice mathematics teachers. PTMT materials integrate mathematical and statistical tasks, technological tools, pedagogical strategies, with an emphasis on examining student practices and classroom interactions. The newest phase of this project, PTMT-ESP, aims to expand the materials to include a stronger focus on students’ mathematical practices in technology-mediated environments. To date PTMT has worked with over 200 mathematics teacher educators who in turn have untilized the materials either in courses or professional developments, impacting over 5000 mathematics teachers.
