Portrait of Amanda Matson

Amanda Matson, Ph.D.

Professor of Mathematics,
Chair, Department of Science and Mathematics

Educational Background

Ph.D. in Mathematics from North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND, 2008

B.A. in Mathematics from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN, 2000

Teaching Philosophy

In a nutshell, I wish to empower students through teaching. After taking a class from me, you should be able to ask refined and well-articulated questions and know that you can have fun while doing mathematics. I am continually exploring different methods by which I can make the material stay with students longer. If you play along with what I am asking you to do, you will benefit.

Clarke is a welcoming community. When I started at Clarke, Clarke became part of my extended family. Students should know that I am there to help empower them.
