UNI Mathematicians Visit Mid City

Mid City students visit Washington Elementary

On November 17th, Dr. TJ Hitchman, Dr. Catherine Miller, and Dr. Heather Gallivan from the University of Northern Iowa visited Miss Mastalio’s classroom at Mid City High as part of the Panthers Exploring Fields of Opportunity program, which UNI is using to try to improve its teacher education program. The professors participated in math classes all day and asked the students about what they think makes a good teacher. The students enjoyed brief introductions to college level mathematics like topology and knot theory and interacted with experienced mathematicians to see how they view problems.
