have been the Chairman of the Math Department since 1985. Over the last
ten years, computers have revolutionized the way mathematics can be taught.
We hope to make modifications to our courses in the next few years which
will enable our students to utilize technology in their learning mathematics.
One of our goals is for our students to use the technology to discover
mathematics under the guidance of their instructor, or possibly on their
I received my bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from City
College-CUNY, and did my graduate work at the Courant Institute
of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, receiving a
M.S. and Ph.D in Mathematics. My concentration was in Applied
Mathematics, specializing in electromagnetic theory, wave motion
and nonlinear vibrations. Most recently, my interests lie in
the application of technology in mathematics. I am having a lot
of fun using various packages and teaching my students how we
can increase our understanding of mathematics with the use of
technology. I have written several texts, the most recent of which, Precalculus and Elements of Calculus, utilizes technology in the learning of precalculus and calculus.
