Ted Nutting, a math teacher at Ballard High School, was presented with the first-ever "Excellence in Math Education" award sponsored by Where's the Math?
Ted Nutting has been a math teacher at Ballard for 12 years, after retiring from his career as a Coast Guard Officer. For at least the last two years, his AP Calculus AB students have scored the highest by far in the Seattle School District on the AP test. Recognizing this major improvement at Ballard, the state Superintendent of Public Instruction selected him to make a presentation entitled The Ballard Miracle: How AP Calculus Scores Quickly Rose from the Depths to the Stratosphere at the Superintendent’s 2007 January Conference. Ted has been an active voice for excellence in mathematics instruction, writing several editorials which have appeared in The Seattle Times, The Puget Sound Business Journal, and The Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as participating in a math curriculum adoption committee, and testifying at a Washington Learns public hearing and before the Seattle School Board many times.
