Bonnie BlumbergLecturerMathematics and Statistics
I enjoy teaching Math, and have done so for 31 years. I have an all level teaching certificate in Math. I became a teacher because I thought I could make a difference, and I believe that education is the only way to change people in a fundamental way. I enjoy challenging students, and at the same time I hope to deprogram them from their fear or anxiety of Math. I hope to teach my students to think logically and rationally and "turn them on" to math! I hope to spark that interest in Math so that students will want to investigate on their own with confidence and without anxiety.

Presented findings on Linked Classes at "Gear Up" Spring 2008
Presented findings on Linked Classes at Title V Workshop Fall 2007
I have developed and taught linked classes that link Math 0300 with Math 1300, Math 1300 with Math 1301, and Math 0300 with Math 1310. I believe this is the way to successfully get students through their required Math sequence because students are in a Math class 4 days a week. They can keep their Math current and engage in Math activities more often. Another reason for the success is the comradery that develops in the class when these students spend so much time together. They also feel better about their Math abilities and no longer have issues with Math anxieties. They work harder to pass 2 math classes in the same semester, and take their first final exam when it is the only final exam they are taking the (7th - 8th week).
I have received the Faculty Award for 20 Years of Service - 2014
