Meet Our Mathematics Fellows
As part of the Mathematics Learning Center, Mathematics Fellows will be available to assist students in certain Mathematics classes. Mathematics Fellows are qualified students who have experience with the math course which they are assisting. Below you will find the Fall 2013 classes with a Mathematics Fellow and information about the Fellow who will be there to assist.
Alex is majoring in Mathematics, Professional Chemistry, and Professional Physics, with a minor in Computer Science. He loves tutoring Mathematics! His enjoyment of math is so strong that he often works his favorite types of problems—integrations and derivations—in his free time. However, Alex does enjoy a life outside of mathematics. He loves being outdoors and going kayaking, fishing, hiking, or just roaming around in creeks. One of his passions is keeping fish and amphibians as pets in order to bring the beauty he observes outside, inside. Alex grew up here in Florence with these passions, where they have been the inspiration for scientific research involving testing for heavy metal concentrations in springs along Cypress Creek. He is also conducting a separate investigation of analytical solutions to the cubic equation here at UNA. His research is an important part of his life, so Alex would love to help, or just talk to, anyone interested in getting involved in University research.
