enrichment activities that connect mathematics to science in an algebra 1
curriculum. It provides a basis and suggestions for teachers to include
student-produced essays about the role of mathematics in the history of
Daniel Bochicchio, Shelbi Cole, Deborah Ostien, Vanessa Rodriguez, Megan Staples, Patricia Susla, Mary Truxaw
by which seven educators collaboratively engaged in developing a shared

discussions as well as the products of their work. Suggestions are made for how
others might engage in similarly productive professional development
