Welcome to Carole’s Corner!

CMAT is honored that Carole Greenes is joining our CMAT team as a distinguished contributor. I personally met Carole when she wrote and directed the 50th anniversary musical celebration for NCSM. Her energy and spirit are contagious, and now Carole is part of the CMAT family.

We are so excited that Carole will be sharing some of her engaging puzzles, projects, tasks, and wisdom with all of us through Carole’s Corner. Every month, Carole will share her thoughts of the moment in Carole’s Corner. We also will post some of Carole’s activities, puzzles, tasks, and projects, with connections to MathLinks materials. Carole would like these selected materials (and solutions) to be free to you, so download, enjoy yourself, and use with your students!


Thank you, Carole,
