Personal profile

Research Interests

Adam Poetzel serves as an instructor in secondary and elementary mathematics education. He joined the C&I faculty in the fall of 2007 after teaching mathematics at Champaign Central High School for ten years. Adam’s instructional focus is on the preparation and training of pre-service mathematics teachers to effectively teach diverse K-12 students. Currently, he teaches a variety of methods courses for both undergraduate and graduate candidates including courses that examine the role of technology and assessment in today’s mathematics classrooms. He maintains strong ties with local schools and is actively involved in several grants focused on the professional development of in-service mathematics teachers.


Since joining the C&I faculty, I have worked hard to bridge research and practice in the pre-service secondary and elementary mathematics education classes. It remains my goal to figure out the most effective ways of preparing our future teachers for the classroom. Part of that includes modeling effective teaching in my courses. I spend a great deal of time preparing for classes, building relationships with students, and reflecting on the progress of my students. I took this position in order to have a positive impact on the development of young teachers who engage students with meaningful mathematics and I will continue to strive for this goal.
