We are honored to feature Professor Sid Rachlin as our current faculty spotlight. Dr. Rachlin has had a distinguished career as a mathematics education professor. His 13 page long resume is filled with his many contributions to the field--from the 68 books and book chapters that he has written, the numerous presentations that he has given, the 39 grants that he has secured totaling over $25 million dollars, to the awards that he has received. Through these awards, more then 500 teachers have completed graduate course work designed to improve the teaching and learning of K-12 mathematics. Of these teachers nearly 100 have earned grant-supported masters degrees in mathematics education.

Dr. Rachlin will be retiring this August. He will be sorely missed. Read the full article.

 

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Rebekah-Currie

It takes special qualities to become a successful teacher: a commitment to learning, a passion for serving, and a drive for personal excellence.   Rebekah Currie, a mathematics education student who was recently honored with the NCCTM Outstanding Mathematics Education Student award, embodies these qualities.  Rebekah enjoys all sorts of puzzles, including math puzzles. She was excited to take a class about polyhedra and tessellations where she was able to make 3-D models of some different polyhedra. Her project was on display in Joyner library last semester. Arts and crafts are her passions.  She especially  loves to draw and paint.  She also enjoys cooking and baking in her spare time. She thinks sharks are fascinating. Rebekah has many things that she loves to do and sees herself " as a person who gets several different degrees and tries different careers as a hobby. I want to learn about as many different things as I can."
