Jean McGivney-Burelle
Teaching Focus



Jean McGivney-Burelle is an Associate Professor of Mathematics, Director of Secondary Mathematics Education and Chair of the Education Department. She teaches a range of courses in mathematics and mathematics education.

Professional Interests

McGivney-Burelle’s current research involves examining the role of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics at the K-16 level. She recently collaborated with colleagues across the country on MathVote, an NSF-funded project, which examined the use of classroom voting in college mathematics courses. Presently, she is working on a project entitled Flipping Calculus which seeks to understand how inverted instruction might lead to better engagement and improved student learning in college calculus.
