About the Award Winners
Dr. Hefferon says “I felt that the students in front of me needed an approach that both respected mathematics and respected where they were. Today, I sometimes get emails from people saying that the text did help them see that the subject is about ideas. Those notes brighten my day.”
Dr. Dawkins responded by saying he is “Very thankful to receive affirmation that the work that I enjoy so much is of value to my peers. To be nominated is a joy and to be awarded is incredibly humbling.”
“We can all be inspired and challenged to strengthen teaching and learning in mathematics by the work of the awardees.”
