I became a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Bridgewater State in September of 2003. Projects and courses I'm currently involved in are listed above. In the past I've also taught or worked with:

MATH100, Precalculus

MATH105, Selected Topics in Mathematics

MATH112, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers I

MATH113, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers II

MATH114, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers III

MATH130, Discrete Mathematics I

MATH142, Elements of Calculus II

MATH301, Abstract Algebra I

MATH318, Quantitative Methods for Management

HSED422/MSED456, Strategies for Teaching Mathematics

MATH562, Topics in Geometry

Mathematics Services

My professional goal is to serve my community by understanding and communicating mathematics. I'm particularly interested in uses of educational technology and my field of research is (approximately) discrete geometry.

I've come to love communicating mathematics in writing. During my sabbatical I assisted MIT OpenCourseWare with their OCW Scholar math courses. Earlier I co-authored The Symmetries of Things, a book about repeating patterns, with co-authors John Conway and Chaim Goodman-Strauss.

I've also been fortunate to help with the design and implementation of several courses and programs including MATH114, the Math Coach program for MATH100, Logo for high school teachers, a Calculus III computer lab, Technology in the Geometry Classroom, the UMN Calculus Initiative, and geometry for teachers courses and programs run by James King at the University of Washington.
