I am originally a physicist, earning a master's degree and practicing in research (age dating moon rocks and meterorites) and industry (a geophysicist in the oil and gas industry). In 1989 I decided to use my problem solving skills to improve math achievement. Amazingly, I have led an effort that has resulted in consistent student growth of 3 grade levels in 5 1/2 months, and an assessment that has been credibly described as the best in the country.
