Adamson goes to great lengths to show his students the real-world applications of mathematics. He enthralled a crowd of kids, teachers and parents the day he climbed up on the school’s roof to drop student-made baskets from a specific height to illustrate a mathematical solution to a particular equation. When NASA landed a probe on an asteroid, Adamson turned the event into a math and science lesson that explored how algebra made the mission possible.
