Philip M. Dauber

The mathematics and science teachers of Alameda High School have formed a study group to develop methods for improving student success in Algebra II, chemistry, and physics. They are creating diagnostic assessments and review modules that prepare students to apply mathematics in their advanced science classes. Through lesson study, Mr. Dauber and colleagues build a common language and manner of presentation that enable students to master proportional reasoning, interpretation of graphs and other key mathematics skills commonly applied in science courses.
