A Mathematics Education
major at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Jeff's main area of interest is teaching
school mathematics. A proponent of active and cooperative learning in mathematics classrooms, he has participated in three studies at UW-Eau Claire relating to the use of technology in learning mathematics--working with Dr. Brian Bansenauer, Dr. Andrew Balas, Dr. Marc Goulet, and Dr. Alexander Smith. He has made presentations at UW-Eau Claire's Math Retreat Day, the 1999 Mathematical Association of America--Wisconsin Section Meeting, the 1999 UW-System Symposium for Undergraduate Research, and the 1998 International Conference on the Teaching of Mathematics. He will complete his baccalaureate degree in the spring of 1999 by serving as an intern at Blair-Taylor Middle School in Blair, WI--teaching 7th and 8th grade mathematics. Future plans include: completing a paper on a qualitative study of a reform calculus course, teaching mathematics at the middle school level, coaching football and rugby at the high school level, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail with his brother Matt, and most immediately bringing in the new millenium with his closest friends and Phish at Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation in southern Florida!
