Cedarburg math teacher wins award for innovative lesson in probabilities
(CEDARBURG) – It’s a modern miracle that math teachers are able to make difficult concepts simple enough for young students to understand, especially when they discover creative and new ways to do it. Elizabeth Masslich did just that when she created a new lesson plan for teaching her middle school students at Cedarburg High School the basics of theoretical and experimental probabilities. Her work was so impressive the National Museum of Math in New York City awarded her the 2018 Rosenthal Prize for Innovation in Math Teaching for the most innovative, unique, and interesting project for students.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning Lindsey Branwall attended class with Mrs. Masslich for an award-winning math lesson.
