David Schroeder

DSDavid Schroeder has been at the Berkeley High School Independent Study Program since 2006 and was educated at Antioch College and CSU East Bay. Board games, visual art, tech and intellectual theory inform David’s mathematics instruction of all students, from those who initially despair about math to those who aspire to STEM professions. As a result, each of these students learns how they think about quantities,  uses math to navigate the world, and thinks critically.  In the words of Albert Einstein, “The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
