Teaching Activities

I participate in many teaching initiatives - I'm always willing to try something new. Not everything new works, but it is worth a try.

Integrating Research into the Undergraduate Curriculum

I have several publications and talks on the scholarship of teaching and learning. I'm always happy to share what I do in the classroom, so if you'd like me to give a talk just let me know. I was Principal Investigator of two teaching grants:

  • PI for Mathematics and Social Advocacy supported by an NSF DUE Award #0942670 (co-PI Jeff Suzuki, July 2010 - June 2013)

  • PI for the Gap Project supported by CUNY's Office of Academic Affairs, Improving Math Learning Project (co-PI Jun Hu and Anthony Clement, Jan 2010 - June 2012)

Here is a recent article on my work by BC News.

Here is another article that appeared in International Innovations, North America, Issue No 5, October 2012, Edifying Education: Creating a firm foundation for education excellence in North America.

I'm engaged in the following teaching initiatives at Brooklyn College:

I also participated in Numeracy Infusion Course for Higher Education supported by NSF DUE Award #1121844 (PI Esther Wilder, co-PIs Frank Wang, Dean Hurley, Oct 2011 - Oct 2014)
