I am currently a mathematics teacher. One of my favorite memories is bonding with the "Math Square and the Arbitrary Point". Other favorite memories include the Math Department picnics and developing a relationship with my professors that some students will never have an opportunity to do.

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.
