What is the PBS Teachers Advisory Group?
The Teachers Advisory Group is a select research panel helping shape the resources and services offered teachers across the United States.
In class, Mr. Hollander incorporates technology using apps and websites to add another dimension to learning math. From stop-motion video projects teaching systems of equations to an internet site or iPad app that can measure the distance in yards it is from Finley Jr. High to the Hollywood sign in California for scientific notation, math is being accessed differently than just paper and pencil.
