To make learning math more fun at Hazel Park High School in Hazel Park, teacher Timothy Fulcher occasionally surprises his students with trick questions and conundrums. He organized a Math and Technology Club that allows students to encounter real-world applications of math through field trips to engineering and manufacturing sites. As a member of the school improvement team, Mr. Fulcher helped create and direct "Connection Hour," a program designed to reduce the rate of freshman failures and dropouts by providing students with a nonacademic setting in which to connect with a teacher supervisor, as well as with each other. An expert on the use of graphing calculators, Mr. Fulcher has led district-wide workshops on the technology.
