Subject Area: Mathematics

Position Description:    

Menlo College has built a unique math program geared toward students who have been underserved in K-12 math education. Courses are based on conceptual understanding rather than programming a procedural skill set. We focus on why techniques are done, where they came from, and why we do them. Testing is done in essay form, with an emphasis on reasoning, and communication.

Candidates should have a passion for conveying the conceptual part of mathematics, and be ready to participate in a creative environment. Curriculum development, assessment, and content creation all happen in a collaborative setting. The curriculum is limited to four main courses: remedial algebra, college algebra, intermediate algebra, and statistics with quantitative reasoning. Calculus is occasionally offered for students who previously have strong math backgrounds. Menlo college has a math center, with which the faculty collaborate in order to maintain a system of institutional support ensuring that students do not fail out of isolation.

Applicant must have at least a Master’s Degree with previous college teaching experience; PhD preferred.
