My Valentine to Mathematics!
Student Valentines to Math
For the Love of Math & Black History Month
We honor the life and work of
Among the many things that Robert "Bob" Moses did in his life, he was a notable mathematician. Dr. Martin Luther King described him as an inspiration. Moses believed in his student's abilities and worked to promote math literacy. Moses founded the Algebra Project with the mission to deliver quality math education to every child in America. He believed that experiential learning was the key to connecting students to engaging, relevant, and meaningful mathematics. The Algebra Project targeted students who scored in the lowest quartile on standardized tests with the goal of having those students graduate on-time and ready to do college level math. Participants of the Algebra Project were motivated and inspired by Moses. One group of his students founded a separate organization with a similar goal of promoting math literacy. This month let us also be inspired by Robert Moses and ask ourselves, “What could we do to promote math literacy in our classrooms?”
