About the Author

Jim Elander, after using the WW 2 GI Bill to attend college, began his teaching career in a small school where he taught all the math and also physics and chemistry. He learned a lot! Then earned his masters in Mathematics and taught one year in a larger school before going to Purdue as a General Electric Fellow for more Math. His next school, 2500 – 4300 students, which was really a college prep public school. (Oak Park and River Forest High School, Oak Park, IL) A school that expected much from the students and faculty. During the 26 years at Oak Park, he was president of two professional organizations, served on many North Central Evaluation teams, and three National Science Foundation programs. Besides being a Department Chair, he also served on the MAA- IL section Geometry committee. In 1990 his first geometry book was published. This is his second innovated geometry program that correlates decision-making skills with geometry. His final teaching position was at North Central College in the 80s before retiring.

The objective for these activities is give teachers some ideas and ways to make the hectic days before holidays or other special days better learning experiences.
