Emeritus Professor of Mathematics

Phone: (712) 722-6279

My Ph.D. is from the University of Toronto, in mathematics and history of mathematics.  Over the years I've taught a range of introductory and advanced courses in mathematics along with a logic course for the philosophy department.  My special interests include the history of mathematics, foundations of mathematics, logic and proof, and reform in mathematics education on all levels.  Having just retired, I am teaching one course each semester so that I have time to research and write a historically oriented book for Middle School Mathematics teachers.
