Ruth Mercer

Under the coaching of Ruth Mercer, students at Ascension Collegiate in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland, are becoming mathematical champions. Soon after being appointed head of the mathematics department in 1990, Ms. Mercer set up an accelerated program that allows students to complete three years of mathematics courses in two years. An enthusiasm for mathematics now pervades the whole school. Ascension students have placed first in the province in several competitions.
