About this Grantee

Ms. Evans, Ms. Hogge, and Ms. Weight increase the critical-thinking and inquiry skills of their students by transforming computer labs into spaceships. Students use these spaceships to travel back in time and research famous mathematicians. Students also interact with volunteers who pose as these figures. Based on what they learn, students write journal entries and produce booklets about the mathematicians’ influence.
