In mathematics there are VARIABLES and CONSTANTS During CRMCs twenty year history there have been many variables, but one constant. Ruby A. Tucker
R Responsible: Whatever task was asked of Ruby, I was ALWAYS sure it would be well done. U Unassuming: Ruby is a wonderful unassuming personthere is not a pretentious bone in her body! And she is always ready to give credit to others. B Beautiful spirit: It was a privilege to get to know Ruby. She is a beautiful spirit and is the first to see the beautiful spirit in other, especially children. Y Young at heart. Rubys energy keeps us young at heart Helen P. Collins
Whenever I think about my time at CRMC even beyond the PRIME camps the one face I see every time is that of Ruby Tucker- her smile, bright eyes and eager-to-be-of- assistance-demeanor. The thing about Ruby you never really had to ask her to do anything: by the time youd figure out something needed doing, Ruby was always busy getting it done! What a real jewel! Susan Pruet
Ruby is CRMC's value-added resource. She has a love and appreciation for the great lessons and activities whose dusty pages might be passed over for the glossy print. Ruby always cheered when I dug out some of my favorite activities on yellowed, faded pages or even purple ditto sheets. She is a champion for the best mathematics for every student. She has cheerfully served as a mentor and coach. She has earned an advanced degree in cutting and pasting and an award for best supporting actress in the Phillips/Tucker Road Show. Ruby's service to the mathematics community proves that the best things in life and at CRMC are free. Thanks, Ruby. Kitty Fouche
I was blessed to be able to work alongside Ruby when I came to the Collaborative as the secondary resource teacher. I learned so much from her example then. I am especially blessed, as is everyone associated with the Collaborative that Ruby continues to be a shining example for all of us. She is both a mentor and a friend! Kenneth Jones

My Favorite Problem from Columbus Fractions Food Andughh Dieting Just in time for Thanksgiving!
Susans diet allows her to eat pound of turkey breast. She ordered pound of turkey from the local deli. The sales person sliced 3 uniform slices, weighed the slices, and said, This is a third of a pound. So, how many of the 3 turkey slices could Susan eat and stay on her diet and get to eat as much as she is allowed? The Turkey Problem

Based on these documents, along with current research, CRMC developed a vision of P-12 mathematics education that integrated curriculum, teaching, and learning both horizontally (within grade levels) and vertically (between grade levels).
The implementation of this vision was the development of three integrated projects funded by Improving Teacher Quality State Grants (formerly Eisenhower). High School Project Middle School Project Early Childhood Project
Teachers came together to share and learn.
Students and teachers worked together in camps and classrooms.
We relentlessly solved problems (and still do).
A Question: What is the relationship between the area of a great circle of a sphere and the surface area of the sphere?
