Mathematics Secondary Education

Kochava Krieger ’17

An honors student in the Mathematics with Certification in Secondary Education program, Kochava is preparing for student teaching in the spring. The Arts and Sciences mathematics faculty is nationally known for it’s contributions to math pedagogy, so she is learning from the best. Under Assistant Professor Larissa Schroeder's guidance, Kochava was able to conduct qualitative research on flipped classrooms, and analyze the effectiveness of instructors' and students’ use of TrACE, a web-based media player. She presented her research last spring at the University’s Undergraduate Research and Creativity Colloquium and plans to present her progress at the Colloquium this coming semester. Kochava also finds time to be involved in Hillel and the Women’s Advancement Initiative, a unique campus program that helps position women for success through education and leadership programs.

“The Mathematics Secondary Education program is superb. Students learn higher mathematics from excellent professors and are immediately placed in middle schools or high schools to gain valuable field experience. Dr. Schroeder has been an exceptional mentor throughout these four years, encouraging me to assist her in qualitative research as well as helping to write engaging lesson plans.”
