With problem difficulty falling between basic high school and college math, math lovers will find a nice intellectual snack, while newcomers can immerse themselves in new mathematical concepts and familiar techniques.
Rapoport holds degrees in mathematics from Harvard and Michigan State. From her first job out of college, as one of the pioneers of Harvard's Internet education offerings, she has been passionate about encouraging her love of math in others.
As an early contributor to both retail giant Amazon.com and Akamai Technologies, the No. 1 firm in cloud computing, Rapoport played a key role in several elements of the Internet revolution.
Rapoport returned to her first love, education, as an innovator of new methods to introduce children and adults to the critically important world of STEM as COO of Einstein's Workshop, an enrichment center dedicated to helping kids explore the creative side of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. One of their classes for six- to ten-year-olds, Recreational Math, inspired the creation of Math Games Lab for Kids.
Currently, Rapoport is developing and teaching innovative math curricula at Boston-area schools.
