Wendy Weber has taught at Central College since 1999. Her favorite classes to teach are calculus I, geometry, mathematical concepts (for elementary teachers) and mathematics seminar. Her work on “Statistics and Probability for Teaching Secondary Students” aims to provide professional development to rural, secondary mathematics teachers in order to (1) build teachers’ statistical and probabilistic knowledge needed for teaching, and (2) increase students’ opportunities to learn statistics and probability in Iowa.
Weber is a past recipient of the Dr. John Wesselink Award for Outstanding Performance in Teaching and the Frank W. Moore Award.
