Department Head and Professor, Math Education; Director, Center for Enhancing Education in Mathematics and Sciences
Lynn Hodge is a professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Tennessee where she serves as the Director of the Center for Enhancing Education in Mathematics and Sciences (CEEMS), and the Director of STEM education programs.
Further, Hodge is Co-Director of VolsTeach, a program targets undergraduate math, science, or engineering majors who are interested in expanding their professional skills and exploring a career in secondary teaching.
A frequent recipient of external funding focusing on STEM topics and teaching, Prof. Hodge provides guidance for STEM teachers and students locally, and at state and national levels.
An additional area of interest is that of building partnerships with schools, families, and the community in supporting different views of math in students’ everyday lives. These partnerships involve Family Math nights as part of university coursework and the local high school curriculum. Informal spaces such as public libraries and museums can also serve as contexts in which partnerships can develop and families can become part of the mathematical conversation.
