Activities at the Geometry Center

Rick is leading the Pisces Project at the Geometry Center and is involved in the creation of dynamical systems software tools. He co-organized a conference on computational bifurcation theory and singularity theory for the fall of 1996. He has been heavily involved in the University of Minnesota calculus initiative and has created and thrice taught a new course on multivariable calculus. He has written several expository papers on the educational activities at the Center.

Rick has supervised ten undergraduate students during the Geometry Center's summer reasearch experience, and has worked with female and minority students in grades 6-8. His work with middle school students led him to create an on-line teacher's guide that describes how to build a Platonic solid as a classroom project.


Rick graduated from Cornell University in 1993 with a degree in Applied Mathematics. He has spent summers working in industries such as Lockheed-Martin Aerospace and the General Electric R&D Center.
