Haitham Alkhateeb, professor of mathematics and director of the Mathematics Learning Center in the University of Baltimore's Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences, has been appointed to the Mathematics Advisory Group of Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics (TPSE Math), a nationwide organization that aims to effect constructive change in mathematics education in U.S. community colleges, four-year colleges, and research universities.
The newly established Mathematics Advisory Group, created in March 2016, is a group of higher education professionals tasked with implementing and overseeing major reforms in mathematics education.
"My appointment to the Mathematics Advisory Group of TPSE Math is something I am highly motivated in because, with no doubt, there is a need for reform in post-secondary mathematics," Prof. Alkhateeb said. "I am committed to improving success of students in post-secondary mathematics and I believe that presenting and learning mathematics must be for success and not for failure. I am very excited for this opportunity and I look forward to it."
Prof. Alkhateeb recently returned from a two-day conference held by TPSE Math in College Park, Maryland. William (Brit) Kirwan, former chancellor of the University System of Maryland, serves as TPSE Math's executive director.
