Hero and Project Description: 

Howard’s innovative teaching idea, “Modeling with Algebra 2,” focuses on exploring functions through hands on experimentation and data collection. Students involved in the project will investigate linear relationships by measuring the mass and volume of several liquids, graph the data, and determine an equation for each substance. They will have less guidance from the teachers and will determine their answers using algebraic and graphical methods. In addition, they will be encouraged to explore additional avenues of interest. These experiences will enable the students to develop a deeper understanding of these concepts and create additional connections across the curriculum. Howard hopes the program will encourage students to take the math out of the classroom and apply it to their real lives.
