Greetings! I have the good fortune to teach mathematics at Keene State College. As a Professor of Mathematics at Keene State, I stay very active teaching and working in service to the college. As time permits, I stay professionally active as well. When not working, there are a number of personal activities that keep me happily engaged.
A quote that resonates with me: “Doing mathematics is very much like running a marathon. It does not require any special talent, and ‘finishing’ is largely a matter of wanting to succeed.” Keith Devlin, The Math Gene , 1999.
For the Fall semester of 2014, I am teaching:
- MATH141 Introductory Statistics
- MATH361 Differential Equations
- IIMATH310 Evolution of Mathematics
A bit of philosophy relevant for students in my courses:
Tell me and I’ll forget; Show me and I may not remember;
Involve me and I’ll understand. — Confucius
