Our Participants Talk About NITARP

    [...]that provided a wonderful window into the student’s perspective of the NITARP experience. I loved how they talked about seeing math as a way of communicating and for checking data…not as THE right answer type computations. Many then said that concept was new and they really appreciated it.

    You and this program (NITARP) have been truly remarkable and has already changed my life forever. I'm just waiting to see what happens next.

  • Powers

    Our students, over the past few years since I participated in NITARP, have directly benefited from my being accepted into the program. You are a great asset and I appreciate all that you do!
