Lynn Rule’s mathematical passion is to have teachers and students to THINK LIKE MATHEMATICIANS! For 36 years Lynn taught first, second, and third grade students for Naperville District 203 in Illinois. Lynn has her National Board Certification, was recognized as Teacher of the Year for the Naperville School District, and a finalist for Teacher of the Year for Illinois.
Lynn has assisted in the modification of curriculums to meet Common Core State Standards, integrated the Standards for Mathematical Practice and through a student centered approach successfully differentiated instruction to meet her students’ needs. Believing in real world context to teach math has deepened her students mathematical understandings.
Upon retirement in 2013 Lynn became the consultant for MathRack. She specializes in using the MathRack to build number sense, enhance understanding of the relationships needed for fluency, and demonstrates how the MathRack can be incorporated into any math curriculum.
Lynn has presented at the local, state, regional, and national levels at various conferences including NCTM, NAEYC, CAMT, and many others. She has also been a part of professional development with districts across the country. Her passion for learning extends beyond the MathRack…it is about serving teachers and students and having them Think Like Mathematicians!
