We’ll check into a financial math class and then hear more about the importance of math in education from Cheryl Johnson, the secondary math specialist at Mesa Public Schools, Kimberly Rimbey, the chief learning officer for early adolescent mathematics from the Rodel Foundation of Arizona, and Al Boggess, the director of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Arizona State University.
