#### Bob Moses Has Passed Away

Bob Moses, math education innovator and civil rights icon, has passed away. Through his Algebra Project, he advocated an innovative approach to mathematics to appeal to poor minority children, and to accommodate a variety of learning styles. A main focus of the project is about demanding rigorous education in low-income communities, where children are typically tracked into remedial classes.
