Accomplishments

2008

Dr. Pam Crawford, chair of the department of mathematics, presented a paper entitled "S3: Sand, Surf and Slopes-Integration of Marine Science (and Computing Sciences) into Precalculus," at the American Mathematical Society and Mathematical Association of America's (MAA) joint meeting on January 9, 2008 in San Diego. Crawford, who co-authored the paper with Dr. Daniel McCarthy, assistant professor of biology and Ms. Anne Acker, instructor of computing sciences, also served as a facilitator for the MAA's two-day mini-course entitled, "A Beginner's Guide to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Mathematics," held at the meeting.

 

2007

In March Dr. Pam Crawford, associate professor of math, had an article, "Choosing Appropriate Derivative Techniques," published in March 2007 issue of Focus, a monthly publication of the Mathematical Association of America. The article was the result of a lecture she gave in January 2006 at the Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America.

Dr. Crawford presented “Student Engagement in the History of Mathematics,” in the contributed paper session on "The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Mathematics" at the 2007 Joint Meetings of the American Mathematical Society/Mathematical Association of America held in New Orleans in January 2007.  Dr. Crawford also assisted organizers of the mini-course "A Beginner's Guide to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in Mathematics" at the conference and guided workshop participants in transforming a teaching problem of their own into a problem for scholarly investigation. Drs. Michael Nancarrow, Marilyn Repsher, Pete Ryan, Bob Hollister, and Ben Wehrung (all full-time members of the department of mathematics) attended the Joint Meetings.
