Dear students and colleagues,

Here is a copy of an article appearing in this month's SIAM News about AP Calculus teacher Jaime Escalante and his legacy.  Jaime's story was told in the 1988 movie Stand & Deliver.  If you haven't seen it, you should.  I have the DVD if you would like to borrow it.  Sadly, Jaime Escalante died earlier this year.  

Best regards,

Fred J. Hickernell, Professor and Chair
