Dr. Mike Pinter, mathematics professor and director of the Teaching Center, recently published a chapter in Using the Philosophy of Mathematics in Teaching Undergraduate Mathematics. The book, published in early 2017, is Volume 86 of the Mathematical Association of America Notes Series. The chapter is entitled “Helping Students See Philosophical Elements in a Mathematics Course” and briefly develops ways Pinter invites Honors students to explore philosophical issues in their Analytics: Math Models course. This course fulfills the mathematics and quantitative reasoning requirement in the Honors Program general education curriculum.
