January 15, 2018 Secondary Math Distinguished Speaker – Pam Harris

Pam Harris is currently teaching at Texas State University and is the author of several books.  She is nationally known for her work with secondary numeracy at will be joining us for a day of Secondary Math Strings.  She believes that the sequence of activities is as important as the activities themselves.  Math class should be an activity of construction mathematical ideas as they arise out of real-world situations.
