Research

My research has centered around three main areas: (1) Exploring new
ways to effectively teach mathematics (especially using computer technology
and distance education); (2) Studying mathematical applications
with the aim to bring more applications into my teaching, and (3)
Studying mathematical beauty and precision in nature. A brief history
on this third type of research follows: A book is in process and several
multimedia presentations have been produced. Ron calls this research Divine
Design.
