I have been working at the high school level as a Bilingual Mathematics teacher, which means that I work with English language learners and teach them math while helping them to learn English.

The Math and CS faculty at Marywood are available to give presentation to high school classes or math clubs on a range of topics. If you are interested in inviting any of the following faculty, please contact the faculty member directly by phone or email.

  • Dr. Craig Johnson: Math and Music

    All teachers know that pattern recognition is a valuable skill in learning mathematics. Identifying sequences of notes on the staff that result from musical transformations such as reflections and inversions can be used to introduce interesting notions in higher algebra.  Sets of inversions found in works by classical composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach can be given a structure that leads in a natural way to the definition of a group. This talk explores these connections of math to music.
