Teaching Philosophy
I emphasize problem solving skills by guiding students to piece together information to reach new conclusions. Research in STEM education suggests active learning classrooms are more effective for all students and especially for students from underrepresented groups. I utilize active learning through regular inclass problem sets which are designed to require creative problem solving rather than quoting memorized information.
