Welcome, my name is William Montes de Oca. My goal is to encourage students to make sense of mathematical problems by assisting them to think critically, ask questions, persevere in problem solving and construct logical arguments.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and graduate degree in Mathematics Education at Syracuse University.
Mathematical abilities enable one to think and reason logically, critically, sequentially, and algorithmically. Students must be able to solve, understand, and express mathematical, algebraic, and geometric concepts; in independent written assignments, as well as meaningfully participate in classroom and cooperative-learning tasks. Students are expected to listen, record effectively, inquire, offer solutions, organize, evaluate, and apply information.
