*The National Math and Science Initiative is offering a set of free video lessons in math, science and English to help educators as they continue to adjust to online teaching.
“NMSI’s mission is to increase access and achievement in rigorous STEM education for all students,” said CEO Dr. Bernard Harris. “While teachers and students continue to adjust to online learning, we knew we could help by providing high-quality, ready-to-use lessons. I’m grateful to our outstanding trainers and to John Urschel for helping us do this small part for our country’s education system.”
John Urschel, a former lineman for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens and MIT doctoral candidate, provided a video for high school students because he wants to inspire more students to understand and appreciate math.
“Math is foundational to everything in our lives, and I’m happy to do what I can to show young people that they can be successful in it,” said Urschel, author of “Mind and Matter: A Life in Math and Football.” “I’m also happy to provide help to teachers and to families struggling to deliver online education. It’s a challenging time, but we’ll get through it together.”
