It's safe to say that many people hate math and hate running. With a little help from community, it turns out that anybody can learn math and even run 100 miles in 30 hours.
Angie Hodge is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at UNO where she helps to recruit and retain mathematics teachers. She is also an ultra-marathon runner meaning she runs races over 26.2 miles. In fact, Angie recently completed a 100 mile race.
Hodge earned both her master’s degree and Ph.D. from Purdue University in mathematics and mathematics education respectively and is a Special Projects Coordinator for the Academy of Inquiry-Based Learning, a Project NExT national fellow, and a member of the MAA’s COMET (committee on the mathematical education of teachers) committee.
