Here's an excerpt from a recent article spotlighting Dr. Shirley Disseler and the amazing work she has done on The Brick Math Series. This wonderful new series of books aims to help teachers breathe new life into teaching math by using everyone's favorite childhood toy—LEGO® bricks!
HIGH POINT, N.C., June 6, 2016 – Dr. Shirley Disseler, associate professor in the School of Education at High Point University, published the first title in a 10-book series aimed at helping teachers and parents teach math in an engaging and accessible way.
