math teacher with students

Math teacher Diane Schnellhammer was recognized in the 2007 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). Here, she works with AP Calculus students on building mathematical models. Her students--at the Department of Defense school at Ramstein Air Base in Germany--are shown modeling two versions of the same equation, examining what happens when they change the axis of rotation.
