Operation Comics, Issue #1

Bruce Kessler, Western Kentucky University
Annie Erskine, Western Kentucky University


This is the first of three comics that will be produced during the Spring 2009 semester for use with the 3rd through 6th grade students at Cumberland Trace Elementary. The printing of the comics is being provided by a WKU Provost's Initiatives for Excellence grant, #O-09-039. This issue is twice of the length of the other two comics that will be produced, due to the need to establish the story line. For more information on the origin and goals of comic book idea, see the pre-print of the paper "Comic Books That Teach Mathematics" at http://works.bepress.com/bruce_kessler/8.
