Description: This summer, together with the Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) and Microsoft, the Partnership worked with two Savannah teachers to develop high school math curriculum based on Georgia Smart Community Challenge projects. The two teachers, Beth Jones and Rashi Kohli, worked with the City of Savannah’s Civic Data Science for Equitable Development project to frame out a classroom activity that answers the frequent student question: “When will I use this in real life?”. Join the Partnership as we discuss the work accomplished by this internship, and how it translated to the high school algebra classroom.
