Ricky Carter

Ricky teaches in the educational technology programs in the Graduate School of Education. He draws on his work in educational software development, curriculum development, and research to keep his classes fresh and alive. Although he teaches courses in mobile technologies and computer programming, he also has a strong interest in mathematics education. He particularly enjoys helping K-12 teachers who are uncomfortable with math to experience math as fun, engaging, and interesting. He strives to create activities where teachers can invent mathematical ideas, particularly those immediately applicable to teachers' classrooms.
