Co-Editor Math Horizons
Of all of the publications we know Math Horizons is the broadest, most creative forum that exists for communicating the culture, characters and folklore of mathematics today's students. Whether helping our students to know and care about the "who" and the "why" of their chosen subject, giving voice to its current practitioners, or shedding light on the interface between mathematics and the larger academic or popular culture, Math Horizons always explores its subjects with an inviting tone and trademark accessibility.
For going on fifteen years, Math Horizons has exposed undergraduates-and instructors-to the mathematical world beyond the classroom with authentic detail and good humor that make it easy to pick up and irresistible to read.
