Denison Universtiy

Although Denison University does not formally train STEM teachers, I am very interested in this important work. I have actively developed and shaped our mathematics curriculum at Denison to meet the needs of a wide range of students, including a novel approach to our first-year courses for majors, to the development of a yearlong sequence for pre-professional students. This fall I will co-direct a pilot program aimed at persistence in the sciences of our first-year students. I and a professor of chemistry will work with a cohort of 24 students in an entry level calculus course, intro to chemistry and a first year studies seminar geared toward student success and career exploration.
