Cho and Schille recognized for outstanding teaching

The winners of the 2017 Teaching Excellence Awards in Mathematical Sciences are Min Hyung Cho and Theresa Schille.

Min Hyung Cho

 

Min Hyung Cho (Ph. D.  UNC Charlotte 2005)  is completing his second year at UML. He teaches a variety of graduate and undergraduate courses. His research focuses on developing fast computational algorithms for wave scattering such as Maxwell’s equations and Helmholtz equation.

 

 

Theresa Schille

Theresa Schille (B. S. UMass Lowell, 1992, M. S. UMass Lowell 1994) is completing her sixth year as a Lecturer in the Mathematical Sciences.  She has taught calculus and precalculus courses in the day, evening and industrial settings.

Congratulations to both Min Hyung and Theresa on this well-deserved honor!

 

Math Majors stand out at the Uteach Conference in Austin

The 2014 UTeach conference at the University of Texas Ausin brought together faculty, students and staff from 40 universities with UTeach programs and five universities aspiring to build a UTeach program. The UMass Lowell UTeach team included two UML math majors, Erinn McLaughlin and John Romano.

ErinnMcLaughlin, togetherwithMichelle Scribner-MacLean(Graduate College of Education) and William Morton (Lowell NationalHistoricalPark), described how she and her classmates teamed with the National Park to create science and math projects for high school students. The work was part of the requiredUTeachcourse, Project Based Instruction.

At a poster session that included dozens of student submissions, John Romano won the best student poster for a research project for the work he did as an intern with M2D2 and Lowell High School. Erinn also displayed a poster on the mathematics of water wheels.
