Mark Szymanski

Mark Szymanski, professor in the College of Education, recently developed an iPad app in collaboration with Pacific student Doug Niell ‘11 as part of the Algebraic Thinking Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for Improvement of Secondary Education. Pacific is part of a consortium of Oregon universities taking part in the project. His app, a game known as Point Plotter, tests players’ knowledge of the 2D coordinate system and the ability to recognize patterns.
