O MATHCS S110
Teaching at LTU since January 2005. I began my teaching career in August 2003 teaching at Wayne County Community College District and Wayne State University.
My level of education are two master degrees, one in Mathematics (2003, WSU) and the other is in Math Education (2015, WSU). I am currently in the PhD program in Industrial Engineering at Wayne State University.
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 Optimization.
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.
