Project Description:

Lege's project, HI-TEC (Help Implement a Technology Enhanced Curriculum) combined a core mathematical curriculum with modern technology. Students developed a broad understanding of mathematics by engaging in activities that build a concrete awareness of the power and utilization of math. Evaluation of the program involves a comparison between students from HI-TEC and a traditional program on a variety of parameters, including attrition rate, SAT scores, college admissions results, and professional goals attained.
