Torah Academy, a Hebrew day school founded here 20 years ago, has been selected by the University of Minnesota as an experimental school where new standards of teaching mathematics will be implemented, according to an announcement by Dr. Paul C. Rosenbloom, chief of the university’s mathematics center.

The program is being financed primarily by the National Science Foundation in an effort to work out new methods for teaching science in elementary and high schools. Prof. Nathan Gottfried, of Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, will supervise the new educational experiment, occupying an office in the Torah Academy’s new building here. Rabbi Meier S. Eisemann is principal of Torah Academy.
