## Jack Bookman, Professor of the Practice Emeritus and Education
My research in mathematics education is currently focusing on three areas:
(1) how students learn mathematics, especially in technology rich environments;
(2) how graduate students develop their views and practices concerning teaching college mathematics; and
(3) evaluating the effectiveness of mathematics curricula. **Contact Info:**

As a non-tenure track Associate Professor of the Practice, my primary responsibility
in the mathematics department is teaching freshman. I also coordinate the T.A training
for the mathematics department, prepare preservice secondary mathematics teachers,
advise math majors and pre-major students, and evaluate reforms in undergraduate
mathematics education.
