Description

Come to TEXAS and count with me!
You’ll learn things, too. 1, 2, 3!

Count on Texas is an adorable and spirited counting book that teaches readers facts about the University of Texas at Austin. From campus buildings to school traditions, readers are taken on a journey through the university all while learning how to count in a visual and creative way. This is a perfect read for UT families, allowing children to learn about their parents’ alma mater while falling in love with mathematics and counting.

Robin Ward, Ph.D., is a Professor of Mathematics and the Director for Curriculum Integration for the Rice University School Mathematics Project. She is the owner of Camp GEM® (Girls Excelling in Math) and Camp GEMS® (Girls Excelling in Math and Science), after-school and summer camps designed to direct girls in grades preK-5 into the STEAM pipeline. For over a decade, Dr. Ward has been teaching her uniquely integrated math-visual arts program at two Texas pre-schools, as well as providing extensive teacher professional development focused on integrating mathematics and the visual arts.

During her two-decade career as a mathematics educator, Ward has received over $10,000,000 in numerous grants from NASA, NSF, TEA, and the U.S. Department of Education, all geared towards improving preK-12 teachers’ mathematical and pedagogical knowledge. Dr. Ward, a former aerospace engineer, is a two-time recipient of a Stanford-ASEE fellowship, where she partnered with NASA Dryden to develop web-based materials for K-12 teachers that showcase the work of NASA scientists.

Dr. Ward, an advocate of arts integration, has been published nationally and internationally in numerous journals on this topic, and she is the author of five teacher resource books on using art and children’s literature in the K-8 mathematics classroom. She has also authored seven children’s counting books. Her most recent book is Count on Texas: Fun Facts from 1 to12, coming out in December of 2019. She is regularly heard encouraging teachers and students to “Put on their math goggles®!” as a means to see mathematics in their world.

Dr. Ward holds her Ph.D. in mathematics education from the University of Virginia, her M.A in mathematics from Villanova University, and a B.A. in math/physics and a minor in French from Immaculata College.

She is the mother of two teenage daughters, Sienna and Sophia, and her husband is Chris Del Conte, Director of Athletics at the University of Texas-Austin.
