Our students say…

"This program forced me to look at math in a better way than simply the drill and quiz method. I find it very enlightening and helpful!"
"In these courses you create usable, meaningful projects that are interdisciplinary and aligned with the standards. The practical application of the activities was useful. It was helpful to share our projects with class members - we can adapt them for use in our classes (with permission, of course)."
