Making Actions in the Proving Process Explicit, Visible, and “Reflectable”
(2010) Proceedings of the 13th Annual Conference on Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education
This paper, published in the RUME 2010 proceedings, attempts to describe a Real Analysis supplemental class that utilized comparable theorems to help students prove theorems in homework and tests. Please download it below.
Conference Presentations/Invited Talks
New Mexico Council of Teachers of Mathematics Workshop
October 7th-9th (Albuquerque, NM)
At the New Mexico Council for Teachers of Mathematics, my colleague and I presented the concept and the products from the Math Snacks NSF grant to mathematics teachers from all over the state of New Mexico.
International Society for Technology in Education
June 26th-29th (Denver, CO)
My colleagues and I presented Math Snacks research and products at a poster session. For more information on Math Snacks please visit the website or read more under the Research Projects tab.
Legacy of R.L. Moore
June 17th-19th (Austin, TX)
Kerry McKee and I gave a 20 minute presentation on our real analysis supplement course. Below you will find the Power Point presentation. To view a video of the presentation, please visit this site.
Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education
March 29th-April 2nd (San Diego, CA)
At the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) conference my colleague and I presented a poster on Math Snacks products at the conference's poster session. The information presented during the poster session can be found below in a brief paper. You can find more information about Math Snacks under the Research and Publication tab of this website.
Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education
February 25th-28th (Raleigh, NC)
At the Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education (RUME) conference my colleagues and I gave a 20 minute presentation on our real analysis supplement course. This preliminary report describes the practices of teachers attempting to alleviate proving difficulties in a voluntary “proving skills supplement” to an undergraduate real analysis course. Below you will find the full paper that will be published in the RUME conference proceedings and the PowerPoint presentation.
Wavelets on the integers modulo n
(2004) Ball State Undergraduate Mathematics Exchange, vol. 2
In Ball State, I participated in a seminar using the textbook, "An Introduction of Wavelets Through Linear Algebra" (Frazier, 1999). I was asked to summarize that seminar, and that summary was published in the Ball State Undergraduate Mathematics Exchange (2004).
The Partition Function and Ramanujan's 5k+4 Congruence
(2004) Ball State Undergraduate Mathematics Exchange, vol. 1
This was my thesis for the Honors Degree at Ball State. It focuses on Partition Functions, and in particular Euler's Pentagonal Number Theorem and Ramaujan's 5k+4 identity, which says that any partition of a number of the form 5k+4 is divisible by 5. This short synopsis was published in the first-ever Ball State Undergraduate Mathematics Exchange (2004).
