Web apps and materials for learning about optimization (high-school level) These materials were created by Marc Brousseau, a teacher at Middleton high school in Madison, WI, working with graduate student Ben Afflerbach in the Morgan group. This work was done as part of a Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program (https://mrsec.wisc.edu/ret/) at UW Madison run by the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), funded under grant number DMR-1720415.
