Areas of Interest:
I wrote a textbook in Trigonometry which I'm in the process of getting it published.
Statistics is another area of interest I especially enjoy teaching. I also like teaching
many topics in Algebra and Calculus, and topics I'm learning in my PhD program such
as topics in Operations Research that crossover into Discrete Mathematics.
My research interests are still in development. Currently I am beginning my research in
Educating mathematics and statistics is my passion. My style of teaching is proactive. I
have students be active participants in their learning. Student participation during class
contact time in their own learning process is an application of a learning theory called
Constructivism. My hobbies are in areas of nutrition. I operate a hydraulic press juicer.
My motto, "eat smart be smart." I encourage a nutritious diet with fresh fruits and
vegetables to support well balance.
