Ms. Ettaro throws her class some major curves. It's an honors math class with a twist. First Ms. Ettaro has her students study classical polar curves. Next, they search for examples of them outside the classroom. It's a powerful demonstration of how even the most obscure geometric shapes can relate to everyday life. For her innovative approach, State Farm is pleased to present Ms. Carmella Ettaro with our Good Neighbor Teacher Award' and to donate $10,000 to Westlake High School in Westlake Village, California.
