My name is Mary Wiesner. I am a mathematics teacher at Episcopal HIgh School in Houston, Texas. During the school year of 1997-98 I taught Pre-Calculus and Geometry. However, in the years that I have taught high school studetns, I have taught every math course from Fundamemtals of Mathematics to Calculus at both the advanced and academic levels. For the past seven years I have also taught in an adjunct capacity for Houston Community College and for the University of Houston , my most recent alma mater.
I am currently working with a group of teachers from the Houston area with the Rice University Site of the Institute for Advanced Studies/ Park City Mathematics Institute and with the GirlTECH '96 project. I invite you to visit our home pages to learn about some of our activities. We have been devoting much of our effort to learning how to use the Calculator Based Laboratory (CBL) developed by Texas Instruments. During the summer of 1995 we spent three intensive but glorious weeks in Park City, Utah, the home of the 2002 Winter Olympics. During the months of June 23 through July 13, 1996 we spent three wonderfully exciting weeks at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey. During the summer of 1997 I spent another glorious week in Park City again, but this time I was one of 6 teachers selected from previous participants to be a teacher in residence.
