Jack Bookman, Professor of the Practice Emeritus and Education

Jack Bookman

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.

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.
