One of last year's tips mentioned a Math program being offered by the Carnegie Institute to a limited number of schools. Miss Dawn Lamarca from East Pennsboro was forwarded that tip and she decided to investigate. Here's her summary of the results. Congratulations to Ms Lamarca and especially to her two students, Stefani and Michael.
 
WHO:     Miss Dawn Lamarca the 8th grade algebra teacher and
               two 8th grade algebra students, Stefani ****** and
               Michael ******.
 
WHAT:   Your referral of a web site, to one of the teachers here at the
                middle school who then referred it to me, from Carnegie University
                about a 4 week algebra challenge.  I applied and was choosen
                as one of 500 teachers from across the United States to have my
                30 algebra students try and complete the Challenge.
 
WHEN:     fall of 2005.
 
WHERE:  East Pennsboro Area Middle School;  Enola, PA
 
WHY:       These 2 students completed the Carnegie Challenge by finishing the WHOLE algebra course,
                of lesson problems, in 4 weeks.  They used Carnegie's web site and special CD.  
 
                They were the ONLY 2  out of 2,500 students  to complete
                the whole algebra course in 4 weeks from across the United States
.
 
HOW:      By utilizing our 30 Computers from our Lab Room and 30 Mobile
                Wireless Laptops thoughout the 4 weeks, as well as the students
                personal computers at each of their homes,
