Diana and Lumberjack Math

By: Rebekah Bjork | May 13, 2015

Diana has 45 years of math experience teaching in junior high schools, high schools, and community colleges. She has been a key player in the Lumberjack Math instructional kit volunteering for Heidi Kloempken in the Museum Education and Lifelong Learning department. The Lumberjack Math instructional kit it a fun and unique way to introduce math and history for students grades 4 - 8. She has checked the math problems along with answers and reworded to make sure that the language of the problems are easy to understand for non-native English speakers. Not only does she check the word problems, Diana also offered great ideas and clarifications on the tool kit.
