Evyn is the Assistant of Instruction for the Mathematics Department. She graduated from the University of Colorado Denver in 2014 where she was also a Noyce Scholar from 2012-2014. With five years of teaching experience at the high school level, Evyn is now thrilled to be able to offer the Math Department at Bates support and expertise in the development and presentation of Calculus curriculum. Evyn leads several sections of Calculus I Discussion, and beginning in 2020, Calculus II Discussion. These discussions compliment the regular Calculus I and Calculus II courses by engaging students in mathematical modeling and applied problem-solving labs that incorporate computational thinking in addition to traditional numerical, graphical, and analytical approaches. Topics explored in Calculus discussions include social justice issues, environmental science, biology, and economics.
