Norma, Dr. James Schultz, and her daughters.

Dr. Norma Noguera 

After earning undergraduate degrees in mathematics education and computer science education in her native Costa Rica, Norma earned a masters degree at OU in 1993-1994, working with Professor Charles Smith.  She then went on to with her Ph. D. studies in mathematics education.  This also involved working as an assistant to her advisor James Schultz, then Robert L. Morton Professor of Mathematics Education. 

While at Ohio University, Norma was involved in numerous projects, including an Eisenhower grant, the Upward Bound Program, The Plains Project, and a project funded by the Ohio State Department of Education.  During her time at the College of Charleston, and later at the California State University Long Beach, Norma built on her research interest in the use of computer algebra as a learning tool and her strong commitment to equity and bilingual education.  She became in demand locally, nationally, and internationally.
