One Year Down!

First, I would like to apologize to my readers for having not posted since–yelp!–January. Since then, I have completed a brutal-yet-fulfilling second semester in the mathematics Master’s program at the University of Vermont. I am now halfway to that degree. This summer, I am teaching calculus 1, preparing for the master’s oral exams next spring, and working on a research plan for a PhD (I need to have my application to UVM’s PhD program in by the end of the year). I am also taking some time to reflect on what I have learned and where I intend to go in my career. I have spent many hours reading mathematical journals, which has not only helped me learn more about math, but has also given me new ideas about the teaching and learning of math and where my career fits into that scheme. More about this in posts to come. In the meantime, I am looking forward to having the work on convex skulls and legislative districts submitted to a scholarly journal. Stay tuned for updates!

About eemilne

My name is Erin Milne, and I am a mathematics student and teacher. I earned my master's in math from the University of Vermont, and I received my undergraduate education from Lyndon State College. My goal for this blog is to make mathematics interesting, useful, and non-frightening, as well as to inspire other low-income and first-generation students to continue their education. I hope this blog will be helpful, inspiring, and thought-provoking for high school and college students facing the same challenges that I have faced.
