The Mathematics Department at Lasell College is seeking adjunct instructors for the fall semester. The college is looking for qualified candidates who employ an active teaching style in a manner consistent with its connected learning philosophy. The following courses and sections are tentatively available: MATH 106 (Mathematical Reasoning): Monday and Wednesday 8 - 9:15 AM Monday and Wednesday 9:30 - 10:45 AM Tuesday and Thursday 9:30 - 10:45 AM Tuesday and Thursday 11 - 12:15 AM MATH 208 (Statistics): Monday and Wednesday 9:30 - 10:45 AM Course Introduction (as described in our course catalog): MATH 106 - Mathematical Reasoning: This course is the foundational course for mathematical and quantitative reasoning at Lasell College. Mathematical reasoning is the critical skill that enables a student to solve real-world problems involving quantitative analysis by making use of particular mathematical skills. Through the development of their mathematical reasoning skills, students will recognize the power of mathematics in its own right as well as its relevance in the real world. Students will develop and enhance their mathematical reasoning skills through a project/application based curriculum supported by readily available current technological tools and topics that will include, but not be limited to, the following: solving systems of equations, linear programming, statistical, and graphical data analysis. MATH 208 - Introductory Statistics: This is an introductory course in descriptive and inferential statistics. Topics include: data analysis, and graphical methods of describing data, measures of central tendency and variability, probability, the normal distribution, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation, and regression analysis. Excel will be utilized throughout the course. Qualifications A minimum of a master's degree in mathematics or mathematics education with previous teaching experience is preferred (mathematics educators versus scholars are also preferred). Candidates interested in teaching MATH 106 must have a background using on-line software and experience with MyMathLab is preferred. Candidates interested in teaching MATH 208 must have a background using Excel. Please submit a letter of interest, CV and contact information for three professional references. Timeline: Classes start on Monday, September 9, 2019 and run through December 23, 2019. Interviews will be conducted immediately after reviewing applications based on qualifications.
