Where It All Started…

Our story started in Finland when we were Fulbright partners….

Maarit Rossi, mathematics teacher, principal and author from Finland, had created teaching materials with Katri Espo to empower students as active participants in their own learning while solving real-life problems.

Cecilia Villabona, mathematics teacher and high school assistant principal from New York, thought the materials were just what busy teachers needed to develop effective learning communities and help students to attain conceptual understanding of mathematics.

Together we created PathsToMath.com, the learning environment you will experience now:

A motivating tool for differentiated instruction, correlated to the Common Core State Standards, interactive student exercises and videos, and more…

With collaboration from Jenny Stout, Texas mathematics teacher, who created the student videos, and Jaana Lindfors from Finland who created all the other videos.
