UNL offers Math 810T online this fall

We are pleased to announce an opportunity for secondary mathematics teachers to take a course online this fall. For those whose busy schedules require flexible scheduling in order to make taking graduate courses possible, the UNL Department of Mathematics offers mathematics courses for teachers online on a regular basis.

This fall, the department will offer Math 810T: Algebra for Algebra Teachers (section 700, Class # 4834). This course counts toward the Master of Arts for Teachers degree.

Fall registration is now open. If you are interested in taking a course, we recommend registering for only one class per term. The UNL fall semester begins August 24, 2015.

To register for courses at UNL if you have not taken a course in the past three terms (summer, spring, fall):
1. Go to the Teach Nebraska Web site at: http://www.unl.edu/gradstudies/teachneb
2. Click on the blue "Apply” link at the top of the screen.
3. If you remember your NU ID from being a past student, please enter it. If you do not have or remember your NU ID, please check the box indicating as such.
4. For the question, "Which of the following best describes your purpose in enrolling at UNL at this time?" select, "None of the above, therefore Non-Degree, Post-Baccalaureate"
5. Course Registration box: Enter the course number, class/call number, section number and 3 credits.

Please complete this Teach Nebraska application by Aug. 20.

If you have taken a course in the past year, use the instructions here for how to enroll in MyRED: http://registrar.unl.edu/registration-procedures.

Taking courses online allows teachers the flexibility to accommodate their busy schedules. Additionally, the online environment can be very rewarding. Other teachers who have taken online courses had this to say:

* Great quality of instruction! It was challenging, interesting and informative I learned a lot in this class.
* I have learned many new and interesting things in this course throughout the semester. Many of the topics will help me in my current teaching position, while others have helped to deepen my understanding and enhance my perspective in the math field.
* I was a little worried about taking an online class since there is little direct instruction, but the course was well designed and since we were able to work with groups and attend the office hour, the tasks were very manageable.
