"Pipeline" Activity

Pipeline activity with WTAMU students.
Success!  Pipeline activity in Dr. Perdue's class.

Students

"I never thought I would have liked geometry but I ended up liking it.  I remember on the first day of class thinking 'oh no' but this course was probably my favorite course of the semester. I hate math.  Who would have thought I would have enjoyed it this much? The learning style you used helped me so much.  I saw things in your class I never was able to see when I took geometry in high school. I had a great experience in your class and would love to take another course with you."

"Dr. Perdue is the most organized / on-schedule person on the face of this planet! I learned as someone who never gets to do the 'hands on' activities anymore that students really do enjoy them and it's something you need in your class to be a better teacher."

Teachers

"I have never experienced professional development quite like this before.   I always tell my students that the applications we are learning about now aren't made up, they have been around for a while and have real life purposes. This class has given me the roots of many of the objectives I am teaching.  Also your approach to teaching the content was very suitable for teachers."
