Common sense tips to overcome high school and two-year math anxiety as a means to increase enrollment in engineering and engineering technology programs.
Dr. Andrew Grossfield P.E.
Dr. Grossfield has been a Professor at Vaughn College teaching mathematics and electronics for over 40 years. He is a Past Chair of the ASEE Mid-Atlantic Section and has been granted the ASEE 2010 Math Division Distinguished Educator Award. Dr Grossfield studied continuum mechanics under L.M. Milne Thomson, CBE at the University of Arizona and is licensed as a P.E. in New York State. He designed circuits as an engineer before he entered the applied math doctoral program at the University of Arizona. He wanted to understand and so he avoided memorizing theorems but relied on his ability to visualize mathematics to pass his courses. Having mastered two disciplines he has earned the right to critique both. This seminar reveals the results of his visualizations.
