Michael Herzog and Qiyam Tung, who teach together here at St. Gregory (Qiyam is a University of Arizona graduate student on fellowship with us),  have taken great initiative this year in enhancing the high school Algebra curriculum, strengthening its use of technology, and using video game programming logic and structure to illustrate the power and value of Algebraic equations.  (See particularly slides 11-20)   The slides above are from the presentation they gave Monday at the annual teacher conference of the Arizona Association of Independent Schools (AAIS).
