CC Professor of Mathematics Marlow Anderson has received the 2013 Burton W. Jones Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics. As the award recipient, Anderson will receive a check for $271.82. These are, of course, the first five digits of the mathematically significant number e, sometimes called Euler’s number, which is an important mathematical constant.
The annual award from the Rocky Mountain Section of the Mathematics Association of America recognizes extraordinarily successful teachers of mathematics.
“I am surprised and honored by this recognition from our MAA Section. It would not have been possible without the wonderful colleagues I have in the department here at CC, and most of all, without the great students I have had the privilege of teaching over the last 30 years,” Anderson said.
Anderson also was named as CC’s Verner Z. Reed Professorship in the Natural Sciences for his outstanding teaching and “breadth and depth of mathematical understanding.”
