This study examined and evaluated the Big Island Math Summit held on Hawai’i Island in early 2012 at the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center on the University of Hawai’i at Hilo campus. The Math Summit was made possible through an NSF grant. It was conducted with the assistance of undergraduate Math Scholars enrolled in the Hawai’i Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. The one-day summit provided a unique scenario-based, active learning professional development opportunity for teachers, enabling them to use learning technologies, including motion sensors and a variety of probes (pH, force, sound sensor, light, voltage, and conductivity) to solve a math murder mystery. Evaluation findings revealed that the Big Island Math Summit clearly supported teachers’ understanding of math technology that would provide opportunities for their students to learn in new and different ways.
