Senior secondary mathematics education major Bridget Scanga will share her experience with the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education program in a talk to be held on Tuesday, December 4, at 4:00 p.m. in Stright Hall, room 229.
At the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education program, “participants immerse themselves in mathematical exploration to experience first-hand learning
in the Hungarian approach; then they investigate how to bring this pedagogy into their own classrooms. They observe Hungarian mathematics classrooms and have the opportunity to plan and teach their own lessons to Hungarian students (in English). Above
all, participants enjoy a shared experience with others who are passionate about teaching mathematics, forming a rich support network and professional community that will extend beyond their time in Budapest.”
Bridget Scanga is a senior secondary mathematics education major from Bel Air, Maryland. She is a mathematics tutor, a leader for the campus Fellowship
of Christian Athletes, and a member of the Cook Honors College. Bridget is passionate about the field of cultural mathematics, and is looking
forward to pursuing an education which reveals how a student’s culture affects the way that they perceive, use, and communicate mathematics.
