The Puget Sound Center (PSCTLT) Partners with the Edmonds Community College for NSF Grant
Edmonds Community College was awarded a $114,626 grant from the National Science Foundation for a faculty project to spread Mathematics Across the Curriculum (MAC). The Puget Sound Center will be a major collaborator in the grant.

The grant was awarded to Rebecca Hartzler, physics instructor, and Deann Leoni, math at Edmonds. The MAC program builds on a pilot project the two faculty members started last year, working with Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and Alverno College in Wisconsin.

"This three-year project will assist faculty across disciplines to create, evaluate, and modify projects that incorporate mathematics. We will work with teachers to incorporate math content in their courses," Hartzler said. "The goal is for everyone to experience the benefits of knowing how and where mathematics can be used in their lives," Leoni added.

A highlight will be summer mathematics institutes hosted by Edmonds Community College for faculty from The Evergreen State College, Western Washington University, other Washington State community colleges, the Edmonds School District, and other institutions interested in the project.

Along with the Puget Sound Center, the grant will be matched by support from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, other institutions, and private grants.
