Dr. Rachel Harrington's Math education students are part of a Central High School partnership with the College of Education as they use iPads received via Algebraic Thinking Project to help CHS students learn Algebra concepts. For the prospective teachers in the WOU program, the project helps them learn first hand how adolescents think about math.
This partnership has been featured in the local paper and is serving as a model for WOU and Central to plan further collaborations for the Master of Arts in Teaching program with classrooms at Central High School.
