Activities at the Geometry Center

Dr. Sander is currently involved in curriculum development and teaching for the Geometry Center course Elementary Methods in Computational Geometry, a course for secondary educators. The class first ran in Spring, 1995, in which it was very well received. It ran again in the Winter, 1996, and will be running again as the teachers' summer program Summer, 1996. The modules Dr. Sander wrote for the course include a geometric exploration using Geometer's Sketchpad, use of the World-Wide Web and writing in Hypertext Mark-Up Language (HTML) in the geometry classroom, and a an exploration of dynamical systems. For more information, see the Math 5337 Home Page.

In her initial position at the Center, Dr. Sander became the world's first paid electronic journalist. From April, 1993 to June, 1995, she wrote about the Geometry Center for the NSF-funded newsgroups and Web-site The Geometry Forum. Her articles are on a variety of topics and levels, and have been very well received by research, teaching, and recreational geometers all over the world. The articles are available in Forum Articles.

Background

Dr. Sander received her Ph.D. June 5, 1996 at the University of Minnesota, working with Richard McGehee She does research on the dynamics of noninvertible maps. In particular, she is interested in stable manifolds and hyperbolic sets in this context.

Dr. Sander's research includes her thesis and a paper A New Proof of the Stable Manifold Theorem, Geometry Center Preprint GCG88, and to appear, ZAMP with Richard McGehee. For further information, see Dr. Sander's Curriculum Vitae.
