About this Grantee

To help students prepare for post-secondary education and see the relevancy of mathematics in the real world, Dr. Caron and Ms. Watkins implement an integrated honors pre-calculus and AP physics course that teaches mathematics concepts within the context of college physics. Students collaborate with the Western Carolina University Physics Club and participate in university level laboratory experiments. The inquiry based course helps prepare at-risk students for a rigorous calculus course, exposes them to mathematics and science careers, and allows them to earn college credits.
