Speaker: Tim Chartier is an associate professor of math and computer science at Davidson College, and he specializes in sports analytics, having consulted for the NBA, ESPN, and Davidson College sports teams. He is author of Math Bytes: Google Bombs, ChocolateCovered Pi, and Other Cool Bits in Computing, and is coauthor (with Anne Greenbaum) of Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms. He is a recipient of a national teaching award from the MAA, serves on the editorial board for Math Horizons, and has worked with Google and Pixar on their educational initiatives.
Topic: Dr. Chartier will discuss some of the enrichment exercises he uses to teach beyond the content. For example, for one of them he has students read about and write on mathematicians who aren't all white males. For another, he uses creative exercises like cartoondrawing to reach his students with artistic bents. Some of these exercises work especially well when teaching remotely.
