“...one of the ways I can be more effective as a teacher is to actually be less helpful...It's important that we do not rob our students of the opportunity to struggle because it's in the struggle that their cognition is kicking in and they're really learning." - Jeremy Adams
“...math is more fun here because we actually try to understand it and not just memorize.” - Ka Ng
"Everybody does math. It's fun, we love it!" - Catie Weston
