Springfield philanthropist Rosalyn Bullock has made a donation to Wittenberg to start the Bullock Math Academy. The academy will train gifted junior high students how to use math in everyday life.
Linda Hallinan is a former mechanical engineer who is now a math whiz and teacher. She was thrilled to learn that Wittenberg received a gift from Bullock to start the Math Academy.
Hallinan says that math is more than timed tests and sheer memorization, and as the director of the academy, she plans to get students excited about it.
