“Mathematics is all around us--from the smallest of atoms to the largest of galaxies, and everything in between. The challenge is how to use mathematics to decipher the complexity within so that we can better appreciate the beauty we see.”
I grew up near Rochester (a mere 15 miles away) and went on to do both my bachelors and masters degrees at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. I also hold a teaching license in Mathematics for grades 5-12.
My goal as an instructor is to have every one of my students be proficient problem solvers. Many times in mathematics, students understand the concepts but often become frustrated when they do not see how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Developing the logic and other skills related to putting these pieces together is what mathematics is all about, not the answer like so many believe. In my teaching, I strive to develop these skills in my students so that they are able to work through problems they encounter in their future careers.
