BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN RESEARCH AND THE REAL WORLD

It is mid-morning on a warm, spring Wednesday, and Erick Delcham is darting from student to student in his Algebra III class at North Queens Community High School. 

Delcham smiles and laughs as he pushes his students to explain how they are trying to answer the problems in front of them.

“Notice what you are doing now?” he encourages a quiet boy named Kuron, who has floated an idea about how to solve a Pythagorean equation. “You are conjecturing!”

The capacity for real and significant change in the future resides in young people.
