]]>When Easthampton was shutting down, Tuesday night, with snow and Winter Advisory notices – I had this wonderful group of students at the Math Resource Center, working with each other. Senior through Freshman level students, scaffolding in action.

I wound up with 11 students that night, more busy than average, significantly, no one was studying for assessments, just review and clarifications.

We’re located on the second floor of the library! Drop on by!

*“Awarded to students who exemplify the math department’s core values of competence, confidence, and perseverance while helping their peers realize the relevance and importance of an exceptional mathematical education both for its beauty and for its practical application.”*

The following students have been recognized as the Upper School Mathematics Students of the Trimester for Fall 2017.

**Please join me in congratulating these outstanding mathematics students!**

Past students of the trimester can be found right here: Fall 2013, Winter 2014, Spring 2014, Fall 2014, Winter 2015, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Winter 2016, Spring 2016, Fall 2016, Winter 2017, Spring 2017
