NSF CCLI 06 323883 http://www.therightstuff.amatyc.org/ The Right Stuff – Appropriate Mathematics for All Students A team of math faculty was convened in 2006. They created the basis for a collection of modules that served as the foundation for future Traveling Workshops. The modules are problem-oriented, often utilize spreadsheets, often require writing, and promote a pedagogy that is student-centered and requires active participation.
