From the President’s Pen: Picture Every Student Loving Math and Science
Because math and science permeate daily existence, we can teach these subjects in ways that are relevant to students’ lives. When students see relevance, they become engaged, and when engaged, their desire to succeed increases. Yet without a solid command of mathematical and scientific concepts, students are walled off from many of life’s best opportunities and experiences. I see great progress across the country in reading and literacy. It’s time to do similar good work in math and science.
