Biographical Information

After receiving the Milken award in 2005, Alex received his NBCT certificate in 2008. In 2011 Alex was given the honor of being a Distinguished Educator of Maine, where he spent a year working for the Maine Department of Education. Alex put together an OER 8th grade mathematics curriculum called, "8th Grade Mathematics And Then Some, Understanding Algebra Through Polynomials And Technology". It's basically a zero-lecture course on polynomials, which leverages the state's 1:1 technology program, aligns with the 8th grade CCSS, and instills in students a better understanding of, and appreciation for, algebra and mathematics in general.
