StateImpact Florida: A Q & A With Activist And Algebra Project Founder Bob Moses

Fifty years ago, Bob Moses organized volunteers to register voters in Mississippi during the Freedom Summer. And for decades, Moses has been fighting for civil rights as an educator. He’s won a MacArthur Genius Grant to develop a new way to teach algebra in largely low-income and minority schools. The Algebra Project shows students how to translate mathematics into common language and back — to simplify algebra.
