When Robert Pittman taught mathematics at the senior high school level, he became increasingly frustrated as he watched students struggle with the transition from math at the junior level. To tackle this problem head-on, he applied to be math department head at Mount Pearl Junior High School in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland. He developed a math program that provided a greater challenge for these students that has paid off in the form of higher pass rates, increased participation in his classes and greater success for students as they move through the higher grades.
