I am a LEO III Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Michigan–Dearborn. I serve the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as the chair for the calculus sequence and as the local support for WeBWorK.
I am grateful for having diverse teaching opportunities. Before joining the department at the University of Michigan–Dearborn, I taught courses in developmental math, content courses for pre-service teachers, and honors mathematics.Positions Held
I am currently focused on improving student outcomes in Precalculus. The complex mix of factors that affect student progress through foundational mathematics can be difficult to untangle. By collaborating with other members of the department, I aim to describe the preparation of students before they enroll in departmental offerings, their pathways through introductory courses, the effect of different instructional techniques on student success rates, and the impact of success in those courses on graduation outcomes. In addition, it is necessary to recognize the significance of students’ off-campus environments and other factors that are difficult to measure. This work is supported in part by a grant from the John N. Gardner Institute.
My weekly schedule for Winter 2018 is below. My office is in CB 2094.
