MathTreks' Story

MathTreks' Story

As a high school math teacher, I used video-based lessons that contextualized math with compelling questions. Students loved the content. I wondered how the impact of this problem – based and multi-media driven approach could be amplified with the use of online learning.

What if students picked problems that interested them and through their selections revealed more about their preferences for possible academic and career pursuits? Even better, what if students started delving into the problems the world is focused on solving today? What if students had the time and support to talk through complex, contextualized problems with support from a skilled teacher that could push their mathematical development and encourage an awareness of their own thinking process during a problem – solving experience?

What if geography didn’t matter, and students anywhere – rural or urban, could access the same great learning opportunity?

A lot of ‘what if’ questions that generated one unified answer: MathTreks.
