of making these resources available to individuals
who are serious about learning and teaching mathematics.
I am a retired teacher of mathematics, having taught at Wissahickon High School in Ambler, Pa for 35 years. I taught Advanced Placement Calculus and AP® Statistics at Wissahickon as well as prospective teachers on preparing for the Mathematics Praxis Test for the Philadelphia School District. I taught part-time at Abington Friends School in Jenkintown, Pa., Acadia University and Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, (Calculus and Statistics) as well as Broward College in Pompano Beach, Florida, and have had three books published by REA, one on preparing for the AP® Calculus exam.
I am the recipient of the 2003 Presidential Award for Teaching Excellence, the highest honor that a teacher can receive in the United States. Even in semi-retirement, I still am committed to teaching students, young and old, the beauty and importance of mathematics and I still love the subject.
Over the many years of teaching, I have accumulated many exams, worksheets, and projects in many courses. Most of these materials are in electronic form. It makes little sense to pack these material in boxes, never to see the light of day again. I like to think that I am older and wiser about preparing students for the AP® exam and I have written a number of new booklets to help teachers teach and students learn. It is my wish that teachers and students have the opportunity to avail themselves to these resources, most of them free of charge, and improve on them.
Teachers and students should feel free to contact me in order to start a dialogue on the best way to communicate and learn mathematics.
I grew up loving computers and mathematics... come to think of it, I still do. Among my various projects involving computations and computers, I have developed automated software for grading practice SAT® exams, designed a Balanced Scorecard system for corporate management,and developed warehousing solutions for Comcast and other vendors. My consulting career has also included software development for Verizon Wireless, Aventis, IBM, and other Fortune 500 companies. Currently I live with my wife and 4 kids in Lansdale, PA and work in Quality Management and Information Services at a local nonprofit organization, Delta Community Supports, Inc. (www.deltaweb.org) One of our organization's significant accomplishments was becoming award recipients of Pensylvania's KAPE Award for Performance Excellence, based on the National Baldrige Criteria.
I enjoy tackling mathematical challenges and tutoring students. I am thrilled that we have been able to provide this online math resource for others who share our love for the world of mathematics.
