Dave Moursund Explores a Quora Question

I am a computer educator, a math educator, and a writer. As a computer educator, I founded the non-profit International Society for Technology in Education more than 40 years ago, and headed this organization for many years (ISTE, 2020, link). As a math educator, I have served on the Board of the non-profit Math Learning Center since it was established more than 40 years ago (Math Learning Center, 2020, link). As a writer, I have authored, co-authored, and/or edited more than 60 books and about a thousand articles. Most of my writings are available free through Information Age Education, a non-profit company that I established about a dozen years ago (IAE, 2020, link). Throughout my professional career, I have been particularly interested in studying and teaching problem solving.

The site posts a wide variety of interesting and challenging questions and problems, and it shares some of the answers provided by readers. Sometimes I submit an answer. I was somewhat surprised recently to see that an answer I submitted awhile back had received 26 positive votes. (My goodness, such fame! All of my years of being a math, computer science, and education professor are finally paying off.)

Long before governments began enforcing environmental laws, individuals were coming together to protect habitats and the organisms that live within them. These efforts are referred to as grassroots efforts. They occur on a local level and are primarily run by volunteers and helpers.
