Jean McGivneyBurelle earned her Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut where her research focused on mathematical problem solving. She earned her M.S. in Mathematics at Northeastern University and her B.S. in Mathematics/Management at the University of Hartford. After working at several universities, Jean returned to her alma mater in 2005 where she is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and also the Director of the Secondary Mathematics Education Program. Jean is an MAA Project NExT Fellow and was a member of the University WELFund’s Laura Johnson Initiative for Women Leaders (20092010). In fall 2009, she became the cochair of the University’s NEASC Steering Committee. Jean’s current research focuses on learning more about how to use technology to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics at all levels. In particular, she is interested in the use of student response systems, or “clickers” in the college mathematics classroom. Currently, she is a Senior Investigator on Project MathVote, a threeyear NSFfunded project, where she is working with colleagues across the country to develop a database of good questions to use in a wide range of collegelevel mathematics courses.
