Description: 

I studied differential geometer at the University of Massachusetts where I received a Ph.D in mathematics in 2001. After completing my Ph.D I taught mathematics at Smith College in Northampton Massachusetts for one year. I then moved to New York City to teach at Bard High School Early College, an innovative public high school which is also a two-year college. During my time at Bard, I discovered that many high school math students spend too much time endlessly working through particular examples. I have, therefore, started writing a book and designing a website to show that high school math is not just an impressive collection of independent techniques but it is a rich and coherent subject where many ideas and examples overlap. Before beginning graduate school, I taught math for two years in a high school in West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer.
