Remembering David Henderson, 2-23-1939 – 12-20-2018
Dear Friends of the Algebra Project – it is with great sadness that we share news of the unexpected passing of Dr. David W. Henderson yesterday, following being struck by a car in a pedestrian crosswalk on Wednesday, December 19. David’s transformative work with the Algebra Project and the Alliance since 2005 infused experiential approaches to Geometry curriculum materials and professional development strategies. David was a world-renowned researcher of mathematics and mathematics education and loving family man. His loss is incalculable; he will be sorely missed. We will share updates as we learn more from the family.
