Education

Ph.D. - Lehigh University
M.A. - Clark University
A.B. - Clark University


These days I'm teaching discrete mathematics for majors, introductory analysis, and a general education course (M116) for art, music and secondary education majors.  I'm using peer instruction methods more than in the past, and I use technology wherever it seems useful.  In particular, I use a tablet PC and extensive in-class small group projects in the first two courses.  I use “clickers” (student response technology) heavily in M116 and to some extent in the other two courses.

For the past fifteen years I've been heavily involved with secondary school mathematics programs.  Most recently I was Co-Managing Director for the Connecticut Algebra 1 Model Curriculum - a $250,000 grant from the State of Connecticut awarded to the Connecticut Academy for Education in Mathematics, Science, and Technology.

Finally, I'm an inveterate Boston sports fan especially grateful to have seen the Red Sox win not one but two World Series.  Life is good.
